Where can i get a Wildcard EV (Extended Validation) SSL certificate?

Unfortunately EV certificates cannot be Wildcard due to CA/B Forum policies, so the only option in this situation will be purchasing a Multi-domain EV certificate. When using multi-domain SSL certificates www and non-www versions of the domain name are considered to be different domain names, and will require separate SAN (addon) slots in the certificate. However, when using GeoTrust/Symantec/Thawte certificates you can get a free SAN of domain.com if the Common Name of the SSL is www.domain.com, so the non-www version of the common name will be secured by the SSL for free.
