Multi-domain SSL Certificate and FileMaker Server 15+?

When you generate a certificate request using FileMaker Server, you must provide either a FQDN or a wildcard request based on a specific domain (*.domain.com, for example.)

 

Does anyone know if there is a way to install a certificate that will work for more than one domain name?

 

As an example. consider a client who has registered mybusinessdomain.com, mbd.com, mybusinessdomain.biz, and mbd.biz, and who would like all of these to be an acceptable method of connecting to their FileMaker through their server. 

 

I know that we can forward all of the domains to one of these, but might that not lead to a "name mis-match" warning?  At the least, it may leave some of the client's users concerned that they're connected to a different domain name than that which they entered.
