    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.

    I want to ask what i need to know before i jump into it? What to prepare?

    I mean i want to use:

    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.
