It is still going to be cheaper to buy a couple of normal certs for each
one of your fqdn's than buying a wildcard cert (in most cases). I think
godaddy.com are cheap for SSL certs.
Most places you buy certs from will have instructions on how to install
and and configure Apache for SSL certs, I know godaddy does
http://help.godaddy.com/topic/742/article/5238 and has more instructions
when you run through the cert wizard. Make sure you have mod_ssl
installed and setup your vhost entry for 443 google will help you with
this if you don't know how.
