You might want to try to get a certificate for "*.domain.com" (a  
wildcard certificate). Most browsers will accept that as a wildcard  
format, and won't nag in the switch. I am not sure though that  
"*.domain.com" matches "domain.com" (ie., I'm not sure that the  
wildcard matches 'nothing'). You might want to Google this, or simply  
try it out with a self-signed certificate.

I use this wildcard certificate approach succesfully for  
www.mydomain.com, static.mydomain.com, images.mydomain.com etc.

Hope this helps,
