For cPanel & WHM version 60

(Home >> SSL/TLS)

This section of WHM includes several interfaces to help secure your server:

  • AutoSSL — This interface allows you to select the certificate provider for users to automatically obtain SSL certificates for their sites when their existing certificates expire or are invalid.
  • Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request — This interface allows you to generate a certificate signing request (CSR) to use to purchase a certificate from a certificate authority or a self-signed SSL certificate (with a private key and certificate signing request).
  • Install an SSL Certificate on a Domain — This interface installs an SSL certificate (with a private key) in the correct directories.
  • Market Provider Manager — This interface allows you to select the certificate providers that you wish to appear in the cPanel Market.
  • Manage SSL Hosts — This interface allows you to share SSL certificates and manage certificates by domain and user.
  • Purchase and Install an SSL Certificate — This interface allows you to purchase and install an SSL certificate through the cPanel Market for a user.
  • SSL Storage Manager— This interface lists all of the installed keys and certificates on your server.

Note:

Different types of users have the following privileges to create an SSL certificate:

  • Website owners — A website owner (cPanel user) can only create an SSL certificate on their own domain that is hosted on a dedicated IP address.
  • Reseller — A reseller can create an SSL host on any of that reseller's dedicated IP addresses. You cannot dedicate this IP address to an SSL resource.
  • root — The root user, or a reseller with root privileges, can create an SSL certificate on any available IP address on the server. You cannot dedicate this IP address to an SSL resource.

Additional documentation

  • SSL FAQ and Troubleshooting — This document explains the basic concepts of SSL/TLS and how to solve common installation problems.
  • Change Site's IP Address — The Change Site’s IP Address interface allows you to change the IP address of an account. This is useful if, for example, you wish to dedicate a unique IP address to each reseller, or if you wish to host sites that use SSL certificates.
