    If I have a client who has a domain designated with a dedicated IP, a Wildcard SSL installed and fully functional, and sub-domains which are covered and functional in a secure atmosphere, should that domain be able to access it's CPanel via a secure port, and function in a secure atmosphere? Note that the domain in question is not the server's main domain, and the server is a private server?

    Hello,

    HTTP and cPanel are both separate services. If you need to have the SSL installed for cPanel / WHM service, install SSL from WHM using Manage Service SSL option.

    Please note that, as normal the SSL should work without warning only for the domain for which it is generated. So if you install the current SSL for cPanel, https://currentdomain.com:2087 will work fine but https://otherdomain.com:2087 will show a warning that the SSL is generated for currentdomain.com.

    Thank you,
    Nibin.
