As part of a project that my company is doing, we need to setup a development server.
Let's say our company's main domain is example.com
We need to be able to access the dev server through dev.example.com but unfortunately, company policy does not allow dev servers to have subdomains for the example.com
We need this due to SSO cookie issue.
We worked a way around it by using a hosts file but the problem is that we need to apply SSL.
In this case, can I register and apply a SSL with a common name 'dev.example.com'? I do have access to example.com's registered email address on WHOIS DB.
