    I'm going to be buying a SSL cert for my server so that my users can use it. I'm going to be switching data centers sometime soon. Will I need to get a new cert when I switch? From what I heard every cert is specific to each PC. The problem with that is the server is dedicated and when I switch it will be to another dedicated server. So should I just wait until I do switch or will it work when I switch? Thanks for your time. A quick response is greatly appreciated.

    You can move the cert from server to server, so long as you have the two files.

    1) the private key
    2) the certificate


    in cpanel they are these files:

    SSLCertificateFile /usr/share/ssl/certs/youdomain.com.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/share/ssl/private/yourdomain.com.key

    Also, your new server should be running openssl, just like the cpanel servers do.

    There is absolutely no need to get a new certificate.
