    Is it possible to activate own ssl cert for a client domain, that they could
    access cpanel & webmail with their own domain and ssl cert without errors?


    I have already setup ssl cert for our client domain:

    Thank you for your help.

    Only one SSL certificate can be installed on the server for cPanel, WHM and Webmail. This is controlled in the WebHost Manager by Main >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates. There is no way to install a separate certificate for each domain for use by cPanel/WHM/Webmail.

    If you want to avoid your users seeing a browser pop-up about the domain name not matching the SSL certificate, you can set the preference for "When visiting /cpanel or /whm or /webmail with SSL" in Main >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings to "SSL Certificate Name." This will redirect users to the host that is defined in the SSL certificate, which usually would be the hostname, but doesn't need to be. The only reason that users might see a pop-up in this case is if the certificate is self-signed (i.e. not purchased from a certificate authority).
