    Hello,

    Your browser will alert you of the expired certificate, and depending on the browser and how you have configured it, prevent you from accessing the page. You can simply reset the self-signed certificate at anytime via:

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

    Thank you.

    It's not possible to generate self-signed certificates for longer than a year, but you should actually receive a notification automatically to the root contact address when their expiry is near.

    Thank you.
