Suppose those two companies both use a particular service, PayStub, which uses paystub.com, but provides corporations with <theirname>.paystub.com. I now have URLs for xyz.paystub.com and abc.paystub.com, both have unique passwords.
I cannot make paystub.com equivalent to both xyz.com and abc.com.
I should have pointed out that I would need to make the following "equivalences":
1) xyz.com and xyz.paystub.com
2) abc.com and abc.paystub.com
I will also point out that the use of "xyz" and "abc" is a matter of convenience, should (the fictitious) PayStub.com decide to limit name length, sites such as "freecreditreport.com" might become "fcr.paystub.com", and completely eliminate pattern matching. Other sites might not use the client name at all for security purposes, there could be no correlation between the URLs, yet the service still uses the client's SSO service.
Subdomain pattern matching is desirable, but won't solve this situation.
