Paul - how does this look?  Thanks for your help.



Note: Once the FQDN has been validated using this method, the CA MAY also issue Certificates for other FQDNs that have more labels than the validated FQDN and end in the validated FQDN.  This method is suitable for validating Wildcard Domain Names.

It can be misconstrued, and similar wording has been misconstrued in DNS software in the past.



For a validated FQDN of "example.com", "accounting-example.com" is an FQDN that ends in the validated FQDN.



If you mean "has more labels than the validated FQDN" (as I suspect that you do), it is probably worthwhile to say that directly.
