    Hello.

    I have two servers with whm. In both of them i have configured the same domain (mydomain.org)

    Machine A WHM1 -> mydomain.org
    Machine B WHM2 -> mydomain.org

    In the first Machine i have FTP and Web, in production, for mydomain.org (www.mydomain.org, ftp.mydomain.org).

    In the other one, i have only mail.mydomain.org and webmail.mydomain.org.

    I bought recently a Standard Certificate with Godaddy for the domain.

    My question is: Shall i purchase another one for the same domain in the second machine, or can i use the same certificate since it's the same domain?

    A last question , During the generation of the CSR, what name shoud i use for the domain,
    www.mydomain.org or only mydomain.org for these servers?

    Hello,

    Is this for a commercial SSL certificate, or are you using the free SSL certificate offered through the AutoSSL feature?

    Thank you.

    A Commercial one, by Godaddy (Standar SSL).
    I don´t know if for securing my website i need to put www.mydomian.org or mydomain.org in the whm domain filed?
    The fact is that i have the same domain installed on three different machines all with WHM

    Hello,

    You'd typically simply enter "domain.tld" and the "www" prefix should be included by default.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    The certificate will only secure "domain.tld" and "www.domain.tld". Simply paste the CRT into the available field when installing the certificate in WHM and the remaining fields should automatically populate. Note that it won't secure subdomains associated with the domain name. You may want to consider using the AutoSSL feature if that's what you are looking for, as that will secure all of your domain names and subdomains:

    Manage AutoSSL - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    Could you tell me if it is better to generate/install the new certificate for my domain, from WHM interface or From the Cpanel interface?

    You can generate the CSR/Key using cPanel or WHM. Both methods will work. Use "domain.tld" for the domain name.

    Thank you.
