Hello, We have an interesting situation where a subdomain of ours is on a server in Florida, and the main site is hosted on a server on the west coast. I want to generate a CSR in order to buy an SSL certificate for the subdomain server, but the CSR questions asked are a bit confusing. I asked the guys who manage the new subdomain server and they say that the information is supposed to reflect the domain name owner, but the owner is in the UK. IF I use their information to generate the CSR, can I still use that CSR to purchase an SSL certificate for the server we have in Florida?

My first question would be do you have a CSR for the one on the west coast? if so you will need to use the same company to purchase one for the server in FL. with the same contact info and all to keep it from getting really sticky.

Why yes, as a matter of fact we do have one for the west coast. Why is it so important to have the same contact info? The person who manages that server over there is not the same person who manages the server here.

Has nothing to do with who manages the server but who ownes the company as a CSR or SS Certificate is backed by the company that issues the certificate. You can get one easy if you use the same information and SS provider as on the other server. It will be named under the subdomain name and run on the FL server IP address/server.
Just have the one in FL run a CSR on that server and use that CSR to buy a SS Certificate under your current provider and install it on the FL. server.
