DigitalOcean provides unmanaged hosting. You get full root access to your server. With that power comes the responsibility of configuring it yourself. So DigitalOcean doesn’t know that you have a wildcard SSL cert, but you are welcome to use one if you wish, but you’ll need to configure your webserver to uses it. Checkout this tutorial for an example. It should point you in the right direction.
