    Hi All,

    I have a client who wants to have his own https://
    and without the warning certificate.


    This would mean an installation of SSL.

    So here are few questions:

    1. who installs it? (me from WHM? the client?)
    2. what is the cheapest certificate available?
    3. will it show the LOCK symbol on the bottom?
    4. do I need to provide a dedicatd IP for each SSL?

    Well... based on the answers to these questions, I'll be able to come up with more relevant questions.

    Thanks,

    -Alon.

    Hi Supper man,

    1. who installs it? (me from WHM? the client?)

    You do in whm

    2. what is the cheapest certificate available?

    I like geotrust certs, may not be the cheapest.

    3. will it show the LOCK symbol on the bottom?

    yes

    4. do I need to provide a dedicatd IP for each SSL?

    Yes, you will need a new IP for each one.

    Thanks,.. that gives me more info to go with.. now.. here are more questions:


    1. Will the customer get or can get his entire site to be
    https:// or only a specific directory/subdomain?


    2. cPanel WHM has a link to SecureSSL (in the uk if I'm not mistaking).
    There are showing $49 to $119 certificates (well they also have one for $449, but I'm guessing that's not the one I'm after).
    I can't tell the difference between one certificate and another.
    If the user just want to have the secured https:// working for him in his entire site,. in each directory and subdomain, would the cheapest one be good enough?

    3. It is not clear to me where the process of the certificate starts.
    Do I start with the GeoTrust/SecureSSL (or any provider of SSL certificates) or do I start with the WHM configuration.
    I wish there were a step by step process of how to install the SSL.
    Where is the confusion?
    Well... do I click the "Generate an SSL Certificate and Signing Request" or do I click the "Install an SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain".

    The domain is already on my server.

    Also there is the "Purchase and Install SSL Certificate".
    This is confusing to me as to where to begin.

    It of course depends on the answers to questions One and Two.

    Thanks,

    -Alon.

    I would be interested on this matter too...
    Step by step help would be appreciated.
    I'll continue seeking other threads, but answers here would be great help.
