    HOW-TO share my certificate for cPanel accounts?

    Because my clients have a popup warning with this message:
    - The server's name "domainxyz.com" does not match the certificate's name "servername.domain.com". Somebody may be trying to eavesdrop on you.


    thanks!

    why didn't you buy a certificate for servername.domain.com?

    That's what you need to do... otherwise get a wildcard certificate, but those are way expensive.

    All that post says is to buy an SSL cert to eliminate the security warning that is present with self-generated certificates.

    dezignguys post lists the problem. The certificate you buy much match your host address. If your host address is xyz.mydomain.com then you need to buy/install a certificate for xyz.mydomain.com.
