Default SSL certificates for subdomains?

Hello everyone,

a good friend of mine has got the following issue:

For her domain example.com, she ordered an SSL certificate. Everything works as expected.
Her site also provides a mobile version m.example.com.
the framework rendering the mobile site uses some sort of trick I am not familiar with.
It needs to have a subdomain declared in ISPConfig, but then refers to the original site with some sort of variable "m" which triggers the framework to render the site differently. Maybe, using browser agent, I don't know.

Now, we have the problem that the certificate (of course) is issure for example.com. A wildcard certificate is not an option at the moment, so we wonder how to bring SSL to the subdomain?

Thank you in advance

Kind Regards

I'd create the subdomain as a website of its own in ISPConfig so that you can create an SSL cert for it.
