    Having never done this, my question may sound stupidly obvious.
    Sorry if it is.

    I have a dedicated server, where I will run about 10 domains from.
    All of them belong to me.

    Would I require a certificate for each domain, or could I apply one to the server to cover all the domains ?

    Hello :)

    Are you attempting to enable SSL for the websites, or for services they connect to (e.g. cPanel/WHM, IMAP, etc)? If it's for the websites, then you should install an individual SSL certificate for each domain name.

    Thank you.

    If i'm being honest, i don't really know what I want.
    I considered that our main company site should have SSL by now, and that maybe when i add some of the other sites, they ought to go the same way.

    As for Cpanel/WHM, again, it would be nice to get rid of the warning messages.

    1. You can purchase a SSL certificate for your hostname and install it for your services via:

    "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Manage Service SSL Certificates"

    2. You will need to install individual SSL certificates for your domain names that want their website content accessed via SSL.

    Thank you.
