For cPanel & WHM 11.46

(Home >> SSL/TLS >> Manage SSL Hosts)

Overview

The Manage SSL Hosts interface allows you to share and delete installed SSL certificates.

 

Shared SSL Certificate

This section of WHM allows you to share an SSL certificate. Your customers can use a shared SSL certificate to access domains over an encrypted connection.

To share an SSL certificate, select the desired certificate from the menu and click Share. The system will redirect you to a new interface with a confirmation message.

Note:

If the interface does not list any certificates, you must create and install one. To create and install a new SSL certificate, use the Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request interface (Home >> SSL/TLS >> Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request) and the Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain interface (Home >> SSL/TLS >> Install a SSL Certificate on a Domain).

Disabled Shared SSL Certificates

To disable a shared SSL certificate, click Disable next to the SSL certificate under the Shared SSL Certificate heading. The system will redirect you to a new interface with a confirmation message.

Installed SSL Hosts

Note

To open a secure website and verify that its SSL certificate works, click the domain name under the Domain heading in the Installed SSL Hosts table.

In the Installed SSL Hosts table, you can view the domains that have an installed SSL certificate along with the domains' information.
