    I'm thinking of taking either Comodo Positive Wildcard SSL or Alpha Wildcard SSL. But from what I've looked around, AlphaSSL is more available on older devices and mobile devices than Comodo. What's your thoughts on this?

    these days i think it's very close for device compatibility and well older devices are already at risk of being irrelevant due to lots of sites disabling SSLv3 by default these days

    I'm happily pushing on with letsencrypt. If the project is using javascript or an api then the device will be compatible. I've got XP users happily connecting; albeit via firefox, they freely ditched IE.

    If I was doing a pure e-commerce project I'd try and get the client to go for a full EV just for extra green kudos and a few technical reasons I'm sure. Depends on the project, if ACME holdings is running fishBro then it will look odd... when the full EV shows ACMEHoldings inc on the fishbro site, but might lessen the surprise seeing ACME Holding on the Paypal/CC bill.

    Letsencrypt, if you accept the legacy device issue, negates the need for a wildcard imho.
