    Hello,

    i have a VPS, it has one IP. I want to install WHM there and have whm address like:

    https://host21.domain.com:2087

    not

    http://myipaddress:2087

    Please is it necessary to order another domain to have this? What are downside of using IP?

    What if i have domain domain.com how to achieve its used as httpS://host21.domain.com:2087 ?

    Hello :)

    Per the interface in WHM:

    You do not have to own the domain name, but you should at least have access to setup the "A" record for the hostname you plan to use.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I have existing shared reseller hosting plan which i will need to transfer o my new server.

    Both of those URLs should work for WHM access, assuming your hostname resolves to the correct IP address. You can install a different SSL certificate for the cPanel/WHM/Webmail service via:

    "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Manage Service SSL Certificates"

    Could you clarify what you mean by the statement "I don't know how to setup it out of"?

    Thank you.
