    I assume you mean installing a SSL certificate for cPanel/WHM/Webmail rather than a website since cPanel/WHM does not allow the creation of websites using the same exact FQDN as the hostname of the server.

    You can install a SSL certificate for the cPanel/WHM/Webmail service by going to WHM -> Service Configuration -> Manage Service SSL Certificates. Then, next to the entry for cPanel/WHM/Webmail, click the link "Install new Certificate."

    Can you provide me the step by step instruction on how to do this? Do I need to install it in the "ssl/ttl" first then Service Configuration -> Manage Service SSL Certificates? It's currently not working. Do I have to have a dedi ip for the hostname? that could be a problem because the ip of the hostname is also the ip of the server which is the shared ip. Please kindly provide the step by step instruction on how we can successfully install ssl to cpanel/whm/webmail service because it has been a pain.

    Yes, you need a dedicated ip to install ssl certificate.

    That is where the confusion lies. How can i assign a dedicated ip to my sever's hostname? The server's hostname must use the shared ip I defined in "Server Setup" in cPanel or else I will receive emails from cpanel saying that I have not correctly configured the DNS for the hostname

    Hello,

    The thing is if you are trying to take a ssl certificate for a domain, it should be on a dedicated ip.

    That is why i am asking how it can be compatible with cpanel webmail/whm/cpanel service if i will use it for cpanel hostname which cannot have a dedicated ip address?
