    No, only if your hostname changes

    If you decide to change your hosting provider, you can ask your current host to export your SSL certificate as a .pfx file. Your new host should be able to import this with little trouble. Be sure to let your new host know if there is a password built into it (and let them know what it is) so they can enter the password when they import the certificate.

    You would only need to purchase a new SSL if your domain name has changed, IP is not registered with the SSL certificate.

    How do you do this in cPanel?

    Your new host will be able to import your cPanel account as is if you give them either the full backup or the login information of your old host.

    I'm not sure about SSL though.

    If you're copying the account from one cpanel server to another with the username and password the ssl certificate will also be copied over.
