I wonder if it’s possible to have different SSL certificates for different domainnames and just one installation of Magento?

Does this require a hack? or can be done easily?

Thanks for your help

The rule is one SSL certificate per IP.
So for multiple domains on one server (and one Magento installation), you’ll need one certificate per domain if you use one IP per domain and only one multi-domain certificate if you use only one IP.
No hack, just buy you certificate(s), configure Apache to use it and that’s it.

Seconding laurent, with a few more observations:

You will need multiple IP addresses from your web host for different SSL certs OR get a wildcard certificate if the number of stores justifies the cost. You can also run SSL vhosts using non-standard ports in apache (use port 443 for the first, 444 for the second, etc.)

As long as all the SSL enabled sites point to the same directory in Apache you’ll be set.
