How to Install Wildcard SSL Certificate?

What is a Wildcard SSL Certificate?

It is a single certificate that renders protection to the domain and the multiple subdomains under that. When you want to encrypt your main domain and number of subdomains with a single certificate, then you should go for an Wildcard SSL certificate. Mean while, a regular or positive SSL certificate can protect only one main domain.

For example:
Main Domain - demo.com
Subdomains - test1.demo.com, test2.demo.com, test3.demo.com etc.
Before knowing the answer to the question how to install Wildcard SSL certificate for sub domains, have a look at the below given two scenarios.
Scenario 1:

Scenario 2:
