From my experiences, I only recall SSL keys only using the host *name* (i.e., web site host name, fully-qualified).   Unless you specified the host name IN THE KEY in numerical format, you should be fine.

When you generate the initial certificate, you are asked for the "common name", which should be something like "mywebserver.example.com".  

The DNS entries for the web site of course need to point to the new server.


If at some point you change the NAME of the server (fqdn), then you would need a new certificate.
