    ssl instilation

    I want to know what is the best way to install an ssl on my cpanel server for the hostname? Thank you

    Issue the csr for the hostname of the server.

    Once issued, instead of installing through the SSL section of WHM you would go to Manage Service SSL Certificates under Service Configuration in WHM. You can then install the same SSL issued to the hostname for cPanel/WHM/Webmail Service, Exim and FTP service. The hostname is not an actual account in WHM so you wouldn’t be able to move it to a dedicated IP. It’s not a necessary step when installing a SSL for the hostname for use with WHM/cPanel etc.

    After this is done, if you still want your client to be able to go to you should do the following:
    Go to Tweak Settings
    Click on the Redirection Tab
    Select On for Always redirect to SSL
    Select Hostname for Non-SSL redirect destination and SSL redirect destination

    Now when a client goes to or, they will be redirected to the server’s hostname which is now secured with a trusted SSL. They’ll be greeted with a green lock in the address bar and no warning. Web Hosting You'll Brag About!
