No, that breaks the purpose of an SSL certificate.

You might want to consider using an inexpensive CA if this is budget issue.

Try one of these:,DVXA:2005-40,DVXA:en&q=cheap+ssl+certificates
Although technically, you could.

However, SSL is associated with the domain name. So if you use the same certificate for a different domain, users will get a warning when they navigate to the site. Technically the session is still encrypted (after the user ignores the warning), but most users will freak out at seeing that warning message. So there is no point in using the same SSL on multiple domains.

Another option besides finding a cheap CA is by using self generated SSL certificates and saving the money this way.
