https://febo.com returns "This certificate is not valid (host name mismatch)" under Safari 

Apparently  by the bizarre rules of ssl wildcards - *.febo.com does not match feebo.com. I believe  febo.com goes in the SubjectAltName field and *.febo.com stays in the CommonName field. 

Very strange stuff.

It's still a self-signed cert, so will throw a warning with your browser, but you can trust me and tell the browser to accept the exception. :-)
