Can one domain have two SSL certs from different providers as part of a migration?

We purchased an SSL certificate for a domain.   Since then we changed who we buy SSL certificates from.  We want to stop using the original SSL cert and issue a new one from our new provider.  

Will there be a problem since two SSL certificates exists for the same domain but are issued by different providers?

When you purchased certificate #1 for domain #1, it was created specifically for that domain, with an expiration date.

When you purchased certificate #2 was it for the same domain name (e.g., "mydomain.com"), or a new domain (e.g., "myNewDomain.com")?

It it was for the same domain, then the "potential" problem that exists is that users connecting to your server using SSL will react in some way:

- They may be prompted because of the presence of the new certificate
- The connection may not be allowed by their application because of the certificate mismatch
- The connection may be allowed, and logged

All of these reactions depend upon the client being used, and how that client is programmed, and configured to react.

Does this help?

Certificate #2 would be for the same domain.
