    Hi,
    I have 4 WHM production server for which I received free service SSL from Cpanel.

    Also, I have three WHM DNS only on which I have installed my wildcard SSL.
    Because this my SSL expires in next 15 days I need to know, does CPanel gives also free service SSL for DNS only ?

    Thank you in advanced.

    Hi,

    AutoSSL is not available for DNSONLY at this time.

    I don't think on AutoSSL.

    For WHM I receive free service SSL from CPanel 30 days before expire.

    Will I get also that SSL for DNSonly WHM or continue to buying wildcard ?
    Thank you !

    Hello,

    The free cPanel-signed SSL certificate for the server's hostname is not offered with cPanel DNS-Only at this time. We do have a feature request open for this at:

    Automatic SSL for DNSOnly

    It's currently marked as "Not Planned", however you should still be able to vote and subscribe to the request in order to receive a notification in the event we decide to implement it in the future (it's more likely we will consider such a feature with the impending addition of licenses for DNS-Only).

    In the meantime, you can utilize a self-signed SSL certificate for cPanel DNS-Only. While it won't appear as a trusted certificate in your web browser, it still allows you to make a secure connection. The following WHM API 1 function is available if you need to reset the existing SSL certificate to a self-signed one:

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

    EX:

    Code:
    whmapi1 reset_service_ssl_certificate service=cpanel
    Thank you.
