Needs suggestion about SSL wildcard

Hi,

It says I can use wildcard SSL cert on multiple subdomains and install on many servers my question is the following:

-I own a domain called mywebsite.com

-I own a SSL wildcard certificate

-I have 3 servers at different sites

-I create 3 subdomains:
site1.mywebsite.com
site2.mywebsite.com
site3.mywebsite.com 

Can I use/import the same wildcard certificate for all 3 sites and servers into iiS?
Any advice with this would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Adam Thomas

The simple answer is "Yes, you can use a setup that utilizes one SSL certificate hosted on multiple servers." For me that kind of setup fall under the "not everything that can be done should be done@Adam001. You would be dealing with a more complicated setup for little benefit?

 

I don't know why you would have subdomains setup on different servers? Short of having huge brand recognition and ad spend I'd stick with a unique domain like mywebsiteblog.com over the subdomain blog.mywebsite.com as best practice.

 

I guess I'm missing what you're trying to accomplish? I that helps?

 

...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
