Can I use wildcard ssl certificates with multi domain ucc certs?

+1 vote
Basically I have only 1 ip address in an Amazon ec2 cloud instance (Amazon up until recently only allowed 1 ip address per instance), but I want to secure multiple sites and their multiple subdomains on that 1 ip address. Can I use wildcard ssl certificates "within" a single UCC ssl certificate?

Indeed you can. Just create the wildcard domains (ie *.sitename.com) in the common name field and/or as a SANS (Subject Alternative Names) when you purchase a UCC (or create one). Most CAs will charge you each wildcard domain as a standard wildcard certificate.
