Wildcard SSL doesn't handle root domain?
My understanding of this may be lacking, but is there no way for a wilcard ssl certificate to handle the "root" domain?
Example: I have a wildcard cert for "*.foo.com". It handles SSL requests as expected for "www.foo.com", but browsers will throw an identify verification error if the request went directly to "foo.com". Both https://www.foo.com and https://foo.com resolve to the same IP address/F5 Pool. That pool is using the wildcard cert (and works correctly with https://www.foo.com).
Is this not a function of a wildcard SSL certificate?
