    Can reseller provide shared SSL for their clients instead of using our server name.

    2 possible options:

    1. Use a generic domain name, eg. ssldomain.com. Setup an account on each server using secure1.ssldomain.com, and then purchase & install an ssl cert for each FQDN on each server. Using the mod_userdir tweak, you can allow all users/resellers access to the shared SSL.

    2. Setup a domain/subdomain as a new account under the reseller, then purchase/install SSL cert on behalf of the reseller. Again, use mod_userdir tweak to allow reseller's clients to use the shared SSL.

    The ssl URL will be in the form https://secure1.ssldomain.com:2083 (for cPanel) or https://secure1.ssldomain.com/~username for normal web pages.

    Adding to the above:
    Each reseller would need a dedicated IP to provide SSL in their name.
