For cPanel & WHM version 66

(Home >> Security >> SSL/TLS Status)

Overview

This interface allows you to view, upgrade, or renew your Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates. You can also view useful information about each domain's SSL certificate. For example:

  • The type of certificate that secures the domain
  • When the certificate expires or expired
  • Graphical representation of all certificates for quick reference
  • Applicable options, such as View Certificate or Upgrade Certificate

To conveniently upgrade certificates, click the associated lock icon, or click Purchase Certificate. cPanel's SSL/TLS Wizard interface (Home >> Security >> SSL/TLS Wizard) will appear, which will display the specified domain and available certificates.

Note:

CAA records in the domain's zone file restrict which CAs (Certificate Authority) may issue certificates for that domain.

  • If no CAA records exist for a domain, all CAs can issue certificates for that domain.
  • If conflicting CAA records already exist, remove the existing CAA records or add one for the desired CA.

For example, a CAA record for Comodo would resemble the following example, where example.com represents the domain name:

example.com. 86400 IN CAA 0 issue "comodoca.com"

You can manage CAA records through the Zone Editor interface.

Purchase certificates banner

The banner at the top of the interface allows you to quickly purchase certificates for all unsecured domains, if such domains exist. Alternatively, you can view a list unsecured domains, and select which domains to secure. When you click Purchase Certificates, cPanel's SSL/TLS Wizard interface (Home >> Security >> SSL/TLS Wizard) will appear, which will display the unsecured domains and available certificates. When you click Show Unsecured Domains, the Domain list will display only unsecured domains.

Search bar and filter

The search bar allows you to filter by domain name. Enter all or part of the domain name to update the domain list. For filter options, click the filter icon ().
