    Hi,

    This question is more about branding, but have some interesting situations.

    I am trying to setup a reseller account with an independent branding as possible, hiding our own domains or IPs from their customers.

    Vanity DNS is not a problem I already check that in the reseller of WHM
    We have different IP segments so that is great in combination with Vanity DNS
    We can setup Rnslookup so the IPs and DNS of the reseller are ok in relation to that.

    But what I found complex is try to replicate the same configuration and features related to WHM -> Service Configuration -> Manage Service SSL Certificates

    cPanel/WHM/Webmail Service
    If the customers of my reseller try to log in into cPanel or webmail they will see the root SSL domain name. how can I setup a domain that is related only to the reseller and not related to my domains or company?

    Exim (SMTP) Server
    Actually all the email is going trough the root IP and the root certificate (when the connection is secure)

    And the same for other services like FTP or dovecot.

    So basically what we want is that the customers of our resellers stuck with their respective reseller and not reach our SSL certificates, or IPs or DNS as possible. And that in case some bad customer send spam, that stuck on the reseller domain/IP and not ours.

    Hi Michael,

    +1 for the new feature, do you know if there is any workaround?

    I found another threads about unbranded SSL certificates to use with cpanel whm but do you know a better solution for the emails services?

    BTW I saw a reference to a workaround script in the link that you posted but I am getting this message.

    "ITGabs, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:..."

    Can you please let me see that script?
    Now SSL is getting so much attention with heartbleed and poodle

    The link you mention not working, is no longer working as that area of the forums has been deprecated. Access is not possible. The last post to the thread was over 2 years ago.

    There is a user-submitted workaround on the feature request if you search for "updatecerts.php.txt". It's not supported but it's something you can look into and determine if it's worth testing out.

    Thank you.
