An SSL certificate can only be used and accessed via the fully qualified domain name (FQDN).
If you purchase a certificate for yourdomain.com, it will not secure www.yourdomain.com. On the other hand, purchasing a certificate for www.yourdomain.com will cover both.
If you wish to secure additional subdomains, a wildcard SSL product will be required.
