    I have reseller account and everytime i want to access any of my domains using https it warns me that i try to access a different domain name and if i click on the proceed button it takes me to that domain which i do not own, is there a misconfiguration in the ssl?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Same thing happens if i access www. domain/cpanel but with non www it gets the default ssl from webhost provider.

    P.S. i dont have any ssl installed on my side except the machine ssl for cpanel/whm

    SSL certificates don't work this way. The certificate itself is signed for a specific hostname (or several, if you purchased a multi-domain or wildcard SSL), so accessing other domains on https that share the same IP will result in a mismatch error.

    Hello :)

    In addition to the information provided in the previous post, it's important to keep in mind that certificates for services such as cPanel/WHM are handled separately through:

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

    Thank you.
