I read in the docs that a user certificate can be set up for a user's own domain. But what about user webfactional subdomains? Would I be able to upload my own certificate and have it enabled for x.x.webfactional.com (my account subdomain)? It would be for a web service, not a web site, so I'm not concerned about browser issues. It would be useful to pin the web service client to my own certificate for security and stability. Thanks in advance.

This depends on the certificate provider -- if they will provide a certificate for the specific "x.x.webfactional.com" subdomain you are using, then we can install it and it will work.

In general, though, since WebFaction owns the webfactional.com domain, providers may or may not be willing to provide such a certificate. In general, clients use the webfactional.com domain for testing, and would use a subdomain of one of their own domains for the purpose you are describing.

I would be the certificate provider (self signed), so I believe I can specify the subdomain and it would work. Thanks for the answer.
