I haven't done it by myself, but I have seen other host doing it, so it is possible.
Just make sure you can install the certificate in more than one server.

For ex. in Comodo's site they say:

Each Wildcard SSL Certificate comes with unlimited server licensing included in the price - meaning you are free to install it on as many physical servers as you wish.

If you want to install the certificate on multiple servers, export the private key from the original server (where you first generate and installed the wildcard certificate) and import it on the additional servers. Then, install the certificate on the new servers (vps2,vps3,vps4 etc).

Regards

You just need to copy the private key from the first server. You can find the key at the following location on server.

/etc/ssl/private/yourdomainname.key or something similar.

Just copy it from here and paste it in the box for private key while installing on other servers.

Cheers!!!

/etc/ssl/private/*.mydomain.com.key
/etc/ssl/certs/*.mydomain.com.cabundle

Have you tried installing the wildcard certificate through Web Host Manager, instead of importing it manually? If so, what error/issue did you encounter with this method?

Thank you.

At the time of SSL installation directly fetch the cert first and replace contents given by your SSL provider. I don't think they have made much differences but the change in interface.

these are steps:

1) Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain, I insert CRT and KEY and install, this is result:

You have successfully configured SSL.
The SSL website is now active and accessible via HTTPS on this domain:
*.myhost.net
The SSL certificate also supports this domain, but this domain does not refer to the SSL website mentioned above:
myhost.net
Click “OK” to reload this page.

Ok i solved, I added manually in the services CRT and KEY and installed correctly
