, this is my case and I would appreciate any help with this.
I run a multi-language online game sites, browser and mobile based. I have user registration, comments, etc. but not critical user data exchange.
I have es.example.com
wich are the canonical versions of my site in those languages. Then, I have www.example.com
(like 20 ccTLDs) as alternate versions, and all of these have as either es.example.com
, etc. as canonical versions depending of the language spoken in that particular ccTLD. Finally I am releasing a m.example.com
for mobile based.
Also, I have language versions like en.example.ca
in order to offer also some languages spoken in a country with more than one language.
My question is: If I buy certificates for all of them I'll be spending a lot of money, even if I buy a wildcard for my subdomains, the ccTLDs would need a separated certificate each one, the cheapest option I could found is something like +400 and is still expensive for me :(
So, I was wondering what would be the best practice here, may be only buy a wildcard and then cover all my subdomains (canonical versions), or either use some free options and thus cover everything (ccTLDs, subdomains, etc.)
Thank you so much in advance, I hope I have been clear enough :)
