    Can't the client set this up themselves? Like in Xnsim the site admin can generate everything they need and install the cert themselves... can't this be done in cpanel as well? Please tell me how this is done on these machines.

    No the client cannot do this, you need to login to your WHM and generate an CSR. Email the csr to your client and then he will email you with the actual certificate. Then log back in to WHM and click on the install a ssl cert ....

    done through WHM

    To my knowledge, this must be done through WHM, and can't be done through Cpanel.

    You can go to the SSL section and generate the CSR that they'll use.

    I'm pretty sure you have to do all the installation after it's purchased.

    Okay.. thanks for the replies... I assume the client would have to have a unique IP? Or will a shared IP work?

    They'll need a dedicated IP address.

    Yeah, they need a dedicated IP address. I think that's why cpanel/client cannot generate a CSR because they might be using the server IP (shared)

    Okay... I just found the info it asked for there a little odd so assumed it wasn't the right section. Do I put our company info in the form or do I use the client who will be using the certs info. For host name do I put his domain.com or the server's host name? For email to send cert to do I put the client who will be using it email addy or do I put mine? I assume I put his company name instead of mine? Do I just choose a random password or do I allow the client to do so?

    Thanks

    Company = client
    Host name = client, make sure it's the exact domain name they want (i.e. www.domain.com or abc.domain.com). it can't be changed later
    Email = yours
    Company name = client
    Password = random (I think this is optional)

    Has this changes since then?

    Have more recent versions of cPanel made it possible for clients to now install their own SSL certs? What is the purpose of the "SSL Manager" in cpanel?
