Installing SSL certificate in Magento

Dear,
i must install an SSL certificate on my Magento store and I have a question:
Is it best to install the SSL certificate in a subdirectory or in the main domain? (Ex: store.domain.com or domain.com)
My doubt is whether installing on the primary domain (domain.com) can not harm the positioning (SEO) ranking in Google, since the site will now respond with https?
Or Magento handles this and loads the https pages only when necessary, like in the cart pages?
Thank you.
Marcello

Hello,

You need to do the certificate for that URL where Magento is installed because even http://www.site.com and site.com are considered as different for the certificate.
