that one's not as straight forward as changing the input validation, since the * needs changes in the back-end handling as well.

merged a slightly modified fix from PR 2770
Not sure that suffices though. Could someone with a Namecheap DDNS setup please try the next 2.3.2 snapshot with and without wildcards?

Tested with pfSense-CE-2.3.2-DEVELOPMENT-amd64-20160702-0342 + Namecheap DDNS using `*` wildcard. Works! Testing was a little rough because the GUI (or PHP?) kept hanging on the status page, but I did check and confirm that the DNS was properly updated.
