AutoSSL configuration to include only specific domains

Hello ,

First of all let me say that AutoSSL is a great feature , we have servers with WHM and cPanel and some without , and it definitely gives a plus to go with WHM / Cpanel.

We have WHM / cPanel in our production dedicated servers , we don't sell hosting we just have some different accounts for us. We have many subdomains that we don't consider productions e.g. or even all of those need a password to enter. Also every time we create a new addon domain a new subdomain is created. With those facts it is obligatory if you are are using cPanel to have many more subdomains that you don't really want (or care about).

We can't figure out how many SSL's do we have in our our AutoSSL configuration . Please give us the amount.

Second we don't have any reason to have SSL's in subdomains , is there any feature that we could decide which domains will be subject to AutoSSL ? This is a HUGE waste of resources (for us and for you) to have SSL's in subdomains that are only for versions of sites and NOT IN PRODUCTION or even in subdomains auto created when you have an Addon Domain .

Even if there isn't any tool that we can determine witch domain will be subject to AutoSSL is there a way to exclude subdomains ?

AutoSSL gave us one more reason to stick with WHM / cPanel in our production servers , but PLEASE make it clear for us and easy to use without wasting resources neither for us or your part.

The following WHM API 1 function is available to list all of the server's domains with installed SSL certificates:

WHM API 1 Functions - listcrts - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

It's not yet possible to exclude specific domain names from the AutoSSL feature without excluding the entire account, however we do have a feature request open for this at:

AutoSSL: Prevent specific domains from being issued free SSL certificates
