Add multiple domain ssl support for a single application.
I have WordPress MU and I have multiple ssl certificates for the multiple domains but I can't use it within one application, therefore I have to create multiple wordpress instances for the domains.
Very annoying that I can't use WordPress MU with multiple domains with multiple single domain ssl certifications.
We have added a support of SAN in our platform, which will allow you to have a support for multiple domains using single SSL certificate. Having SAN available there won’t be a need of getting separate SSL for multiple domains mapped to a single website.
Moreover, work is already in progress for Let’sEncrypt (freeSSL) to support multiple domains using single SSL.
If you could just allow for multiple certs to be installed we could have this covered with a wildcard and standard Let's Encrypt cert...please enable soon!
Thanks. Greatly appreciated.

We have added support for SAN certificates in our platform. SAN allows for a single certificate to cover multiple subdomains. Read more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subject_Alternative_Name
You install SAN certificates in the same way as normal certificates.
We are also working to allow Let's Encrypt to support multiple subdomains. You can follow it here:
This is much needed. WordPress multisite is an awesome tool, but without Let's encrypt support for multiple certs on a single app, it just doesn't make sense to host a network on CloudWays right now.
I have the same issue. I am thinking that a multi domain SSL cert would get around the issue.
What do you think?
I need this really bad as well. I started moving sites to Cloudways but when I got to the point of needing to install my ssl certs I was very surprised I could only have 1 per application. I am not able to just create more instances as my whole setup is around WordPress multisite.
I postpone my plan to purchase wildcard ssl since cloudways don't support multile ssl for single application. Because I might need additional ssl for the mapped domain on the wpmu app I currently have. Really hope they support this feature.

I'm in the same boat, Adam. Doesn't work in my setup to use sub-directories or sub-domains for the blogs in the MU installation, so I map TLDs for each blog. Automatically rules out the SSL option for any part of that network.
