SSL Cert Provider Limitation

In this article, Filemaker limits providers of the SSL certs one can use to these suppliers:  GeoTrust, Comodo, Symantec, Thawte, GoDaddy and Entrust and further states in a note "FileMaker Go has certificates embedded within the application.  Therefore, FileMaker Go can only securely connect with certificates listed above."


If I am ONLY concerned with adding a cert to my custom web publishing server (in a two-machine deployment and thus not responsible for connecting Filemaker clients,) is this limitation still applicable? 


Seems to me a cert is a cert and I already have one for the host name from DigiCert.  (why Filemaker would align with GoDaddy and not Digicert is a bit beyond me anyway.)  Thanks in advance.
