Wildcard Subdomains for WP Multisite App
When using WP multisite with subdomains, it's a real pain to have to add each subdomain to the app control panel to make it work. Wildcard subdomains are the preferred method, since you only have to set it up one time. After that WP controls subdomains, and so no additional info is required.
This has now been deployed.

You can create a CSR for a paid wildcard certificate without any problem. Following the process outlined here:
But with a wildcard subdomain.
Let's Encrypt does NOT support wildcard certificates (Let's Encrypt feature, or lack of it). https://support.cloudways.com/how-to-install-letsencrypt-free-ssl-certificate/
In wordpress multisite it's quite common that you have wildcard support. Additionally, it's necessary that a mistype such as wwe.mydomain.com goes to www.domain.com. You must fill this gap to have a competitive service.

Sweet! How do we implement it on existing Multisites?
It's very annoying to miss this feature when using the WP Multisite.
I've contacted the support here at the Cloudwaays about this and got pretty automated answer that they will consider applying it in the future. This is criminal :-) not to have by default, since it's one time tweak to the Apache server. What's stopping you from providing the wildcard domain, it's quite standard and as said is causing quite annoyance.
Especially when you come from other hosts where you have been used to this functionality and now it's missing on the Cloudways.
