I have to install SSL certificate on my domain but before that I want to test it on my testing domain which have same so I can find out unknown error.

Is it possible to use it on testing domain first then used for main domain after that?

I have hostgator basic dedicated server plan ..

 Intel E3-1220v3
 3.10 GHz Quad Core
 1000 GB HDD in RAID 1
2 free IP
1 TB transfer

I have single domain certificate.

I want to do so because it may cause down website for unknown time


No. I would suggest using Let's Encrypt as a free alternative to test or else you'll see common name issues which won't make test a representative comparison to live
