For cPanel & WHM version 62

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

Overview

The Manage SSL Hosts interface allows you to share and delete installed SSL certificates, and enable or disable SNI for mail services.

Shared SSL Certificate

This section of WHM allows you to share an SSL certificate. Your customers can use a shared SSL certificate to access your website via the mod_userdir module. For more information about the mod_userdir module, read our Apache mod_userdir Tweak documentation.

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

Note:

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

The Installed SSL Hosts table displays the domains with installed SSL certificates as well as the domains' information.

The following table describes the Installed SSL Hosts section:

ColumnDescription
DomainsThe domain or domains that use the certificate.
IP AddressThe IP address of the domain or domains.
IP Address TypeThe type of IP address.
Is Primary Website on IP Address?

Whether the listed website is the primary domain for the listed IP address.

Note:

This column does not appear on systems that do not support SNI, unless the cPanel account has a dedicated IP address.

Is SNI Required?

Whether the certificate requires Server Name Indication (SNI). Typically, a certificate requires SNI when there are multiple domains that share the same IP address.

Notes:

  • This column does not appear on systems that do not support SNI unless the cPanel account possesses a dedicated IP address.
  • The system does not update SNI for accounts without a corresponding email address.
Document RootThe directory that contains the site's content.
OwnerThe account for which you installed the key.
IssuerThe certificate's creation organization. If the certificate is self-signed, this column displays self-signed.
ExpiresThe certificate's expiration date.
Key SizeThe length of the key's modulus, in bits.
Actions
  • Make Primary — Click this link to make the website the main domain on the shared IP address.
  • Delete — Click this link to delete the certificate.
