Yes you can move the SSL certificate from one server to another. It also depends on the Operating System that your server is using. You need to make sure that you save the CSR that was generated to order the SSL certificate because it contains the Private Key that the new sever will need to accept the SSL certificate. With Windows Servers you are able to export the SSL certificate including int he Private Key and import it onto a different server.
