Can anyone tell me if I have an wildcard certificate for my domain but if I want to purchase another wildcard for my different webpage (Career page) then the previous wildcard would be revoked? or is it possible to have 2 different wildcard certificate for different pages of the same website?

Its urgent if some one can guide me

Hi there,

The main Wildcard SSL certificate should not be revoked, but you will need to create a separate Apache virtual host or Nginx server block for the new website in order to be able to install a separate SSL certificate.

Also, note that you can not install SSL certificates for specific pages like yourdomain.com/contact or yourdomain.com/about but rather for subdomain names like shop.yourdomain.com or blog.yourdomain.com and etc.

Hope that this helps.

  • Hi,

    thank you for your reply.

    But just let say we have *.example.com, now we need a separate SSL certificate for abc.example.com.(career page) only for one subdomain.
    ​So, Is it possible? *.example.com which is a wildcard certificate so that would be revoked or not?

    Or one more thing if we get a new certificate from LetsEncrypt will they share the certificate in .PEM format?

    Thank you.
