    Hello,
    The SSL certificate offered for free with the CPANEL license allows it to add the name of the company before the HTTPS ?

    Thank you,

    Hello,

    Are you referring to the server's hostname? If so, yes a free SSL certificate is offered for the server's hostname. It's issued as part of the /usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkallsslcerts script during the nightly cPanel & WHM update (upcp) process.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Yes, it will show the name of the individual domain name.

    Thank you.

    If you are referring to the company name like the one on the Internet for people, not profit site - that is an Extended Validation (EV) certificate and is not part of the free certificates that are offered by cPanel

    Hello @Oualid,

    I apologize for the misunderstanding. I now see what you are referring to. The quoted information above is accurate. You'd need to buy an EV certificate if that's what you are seeking, as the free cPanel certificates offered through Comodo are domain validated.

    Thank you.
