    is it possible to configure the login of cpanel with SSL certificate, so users do not get everytime:"There is a problem with this website's security certificate." So user would login with their own-domain:2083 and login without warning. I mean that 1 ssl will work for all user login of coarse.

    The answer is to purchase an SSL cert from a certificate authority and install it.

    In the event you dont want to purchase a certificate for every use just so they dont have to see that warning, is there another solution?

    I found the following post on another forum. Is this work and is there a better way to do it:

    I see. Will the solution in the link I posted work as well because that seems cheap and less work for us and the clients. Does that post even do what I am trying to do? Thanks for the super fast response!

    If you purchase the SSL certificate for a specific domain on the server, you can redirect users to that domain by making sure the following option in WHM >> Tweak Settings is selected:

    When visiting /cpanel or /whm or /webmail with SSL, you can choose to redirect to:
    (X) SSL Certificate Name

    This will bring all users to the domain when they type in theirdomain.com/cpanel. If your hosting company's domain is on that box, just redirect them to your domain as it's a domain they trust. If not, you can put a subdomain of your hosting company's domain on that box like server1246.myhostingcompany.com and get an SSL cert for the subdomain.

    How do you redirect to a specific domain? It tried this and it did not work.

    Are you trying to redirect all SSL visitors to a specific domain on the server? Make sure that domain's SSL certificate is installed for cPanel/WHM/Webmail under Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates

    and that the following option is selected in Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings:

    When visiting /cpanel or /whm or /webmail with SSL, you can choose to redirect to:
    (X) SSL Certificate Name
