    Hello,

    I have a dedicated server at OVH with cpanel
    I want to buy and install an SSL certificate for my clients to access their address www dot domain dot com/webmail.
    Should I buy a certificate / domain?
    Can you explain to me step by step to set up?

    Thank you

    sorry but despite reading I do not understand too ..

    I have a server ns******. ovh.net with a single IP address. I must have 40 clients on this server. Should I buy the certificate to the address ns******. ovh.net?
    For what I want to do is make a certificate for "cPanel / WHM / Webmail Service"

    Thanks

    For cPanel/WHM/WebMail you only need to have certificate for your server host name. Example, if your server host name is server.something.com, then you need to get SSL certificate only for server.something.com.

    WHM => Service SSL Certificate allows you to install the certificate for each service ( WHM / FTP / Mail Server)

    Just a tip when purchasing one: I recommend buying a cheap Wildcard SSL as you may need it for many services rather than a single one for each.
