    Hi,

    We have WHM 11 installed server and the problem is whenever our clients try to access webmail, cpanel or even setting up a new pop3 on their computer, they see 'Identity not verified' message and have to create an exception for server's hostname. It's obviously due to missing SSL certificates.

    Now the question is; when we buy a certificate should we buy for 'server.domain.com' or for 'domain.com' in order to enable certificate for all WHM services (whm, webmail, exim)?

    Also it would be mega if one can suggest a reasonable SSL provider.

    Thank you
    B.

    Hello :)

    You should purchase a commercial SSL certificate for the hostname of the server, and install it via:

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

    Then, under the "Redirection" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings", ensure requests are redirected to the hostname or SSL certificate name.

    Thank you.
