You can use an SSL wildcard certificate for all hosts within a single 
domain or an SSL certificate with Alternate Name extensions for a single 
certificate to cover multiple domains. Public CAs will charge more for 
either of these types of certificates vs a certificate to cover a single 
non-wildcard CN, but it is less expensive than a separate certificate 
for each domain. Wildcard certificates will have a set price while 
Alternate Name extension certificates are usually priced by the number 
of extensions.
