    When installing Service SSL, it allows me to choose all 4. Do I need to have separate SSL certificates for every cPanel service?

    Thank you.

    Hello :)

    You can install the same SSL certificate for all services.

    Thank you.

    The question is if a certificate name mismatch is acceptable.

    If a wildcard certificate is installed you can use one certificate without any warnings.

    If single certificates are used the answer could be different.

    Yes, you could install one certificate for Exim, and then install a separate certificate for cPanel/WHM that uses a different certificate name.

    Thank you.

    @cPanelMichael: It was more the question for the threadstarter.Sorry for bringing up the trigger word qustion. Hope you are allowed to sleep. Sometime it seems Cpanel won't allow you to sleep still every thread is answered ;-)

    If he hasn't a wildcard cert he will get a few errors with the name mismatch. Instead of an wildcard he would than need more than one cert. One for hostname.domain.tld and one for mail.hostname.tld and so on.

    I would go for wildcards. Perhaps it would be cheaper to buy a cert for every service. But the hassle is lower with wildcards.
