Re: Adding SSL on Monitoring

You can add the monitor with an actual subdomain such as "www.example.com". If the certificate changes from "*.example.com" to something else, or even to a valid name such as "www.example.com", we will still alert you that the certificate has changed.

You need to provide an actual subdomain because the certificate can only be retrieved with an SSL connection to a the web server.

Wildcards (*) are not supported as far as I know.

This would be a great option to add for certificate monitoring. Maybe something you should post as a feature request.

It's technically impossible to monitor a wildcard domain. We need an actual domain name that resolves to an IP address so that we can connect to the server and retrieve the certificate.
