2 SSL certificates for 1 domain hostname?
Posted on 2010-11-12
I'm still very much learning about SSL Certificates, so I would like confirmation on the below before I purchase another:
Can 2 seperate SSL Certificates (from 2 different companies (i.e godaddy.com and rapidssl.com) operate for the same hostname (i.e mail.mydomain.com?)
My understanding was that the certificates references known and trusted certificate publishers, so as long as the 3rd party cert was from one of these it wouldn't be a problem.
We currently have our IIS 6.0 certificate up for renewal and have been locked out of our account and need the main contact to re-activate which is proving to be problematic, so before it expires I'd just like to get a new one as we will have to revoke and replace it with IIS 7 anyway.
We have recently upgraded from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008, am I correct in thinking that we need an IIS 7 cert now? Again, I'd just like confirmation for peace of mind please!
