SSL Certificate Inquiry

I'm sure this question will be quite naive, but I am a complete novice when it comes to working with SSL.  We just  upgraded to FileMaker Server 16, and we want to take advantage of the latest security features and encrypt communication between clients and the server.  However, we also communicate with an online storefront (BigCommerce) using their API that requires SSL.  My question is, can I purchase a single certificate and use it for both, or do I have to have 2 certificates (one for the server and one for the php web traffic) for this to work correctly?  This is a single machine deployment of FMS.  


I've searched many different discussion topics and not found the answer to this question (perhaps because it is so rudimentary), so I'm posting it here.  Any advice (or pointing to external resources that explain this in more detail) is deeply appreciated.
