I was just perusing the 'review' page for first answers, and I found this answer, which I thought I could fix up. Here is what I wanted to change it to:
You can't redirect to fix this because the SSL check happens before the HTTP connection has been fully made. So, you have 3 options: 1. The best option is to get a cert that supports www and non-www. [RapidSSL](https://www.thesslstore.com/rapidssl/rapidssl-certificates.aspx) does this nicely, and most likely there are other vendors offering this as well. 1. You can also get a wildcard cert that will let you do ANYTHING.mydomain.com. This can be more expensive, but most SSL Certificate vendors offer this, including [GoDaddy](http://help.godaddy.com/article/567). 1. The last choice is to purchase two separate certs, one for www and one for non-www.
The three main things I was trying to do with this edit were:
- fix formatting
- un-shorten links so people know where they are going (we don't need to conserve characters here), and inline the links
- make the answer less like an advertisment for a specific SSL certificate vendor.
I don't think that any of these things are/should be against the ToS.
So, how can I accomplish these goals (of making the answer more helpful to the community)?
