    I'm guessing that's what I need to install so users that access their cPanel don't receive the security warning.

    So, my host name is like secure.mydomain.com The warning says you have attempted to establish a connection with 12.345.67.89 but the cert says secure.mydomain.com

    How should I order the cert and any precautions installing 'cause I have a Rapid SSL for one of my domains.



    TIA

    Usually,

    When you order an SSL, you have to make sure you know what your domain or sub-domain will be. In your case, you say "secure.mydomain.com". You would order the SSL for that domain.

    Within ALL pages on the secure.mydomain.com, all images must be called via https:// and all links within the secure area must refer to secure links. So if you go and install the SSL on secure.mydomain.com and on the index, refer to http://www.mydomain.com/images/image.jpg, it will prompt you with "insecure items found on your page".

    Hope this helps you; if not let me know and I'll reply accordingly. :)

    Warmest regards,

    OK Tag you're it ;)

    So I'm not sure if/how I need to delete the shared cert that apparently gets automagically installed by cPanle/WHM.

    I have two RapidSSL's for two of my hosted domains.

    What I need to accomplish is to eliminate the Security Warning when a client tries to access their cPanel. A WildCard Cert purchased for for my hostname 'secure.mydomain.com' will do this?

    After purchase, just run thru the standard WHM install procedure? Below is a screenshot of how things look now:
