    Dear Cpanel Family,

    Can you please help me and advise me with this issue.
    The details of the problems is as following.

    I was using a server with Parallels Plesk Control panel with 2 IPs, and i had 6 websites on it.
    So, and for many different users, i ended up that i had a certificate for 3 websites from Thawte and a certificate for 3 websites from GeoTrust, and each certificate was using a different IP.

    Now, i purchased a new server with Cpanel, Can i add the websites as usual and add for them the 2 certificates on one IP? so it won't affect them or do a conflict between them since there are two different SSL Cert. providers?

    And if i can do that, is there a specific way to do it? or just the normal way?

    Thank you so much in advance.

    Hello :)

    Yes, you can install separate certificates for each domain name on the same IP addresses:

    Keep in mind that installing a SSL certificate on a shared IP address can result in the scenario described at:

    Thank you.
