Transferring an SSL certificate

I've just acquired a client and will be moving her site to another  
server. Her site has an SSL certificate that won't expire until  
September. I assume that the certificate is tied to the current server,  
can't be transferred to the new server, and I'll need to buy her a new  
certificate to be installed on the new server -- correct?

SSL certs are tied to a domain, not to a server. You can just move
the x509 cert and accompanying key to the new server.
