We have a website and we already installed ssl on it.
Now we want to put that ssl on our sub domain - can we do this or not?

Hello,

Yes this is possible with a wild card SSL certificate. It would be valid for all of your subdomains: *.yourdomain.com

If you are using Let’s Encrypt you could follow these steps here on how to install a Wildcard SSL certificate:

In case that you are using another SSL provider, you need to get a new certificate and make sure that it is a Wildcard one.

Hope that this helps!
