Hello everyone I am new to all of this so bear with me, I have just recently did a fresh install of WHM on a AWS CENTOS. I have a good install and it is working well. Thing is, I didn't put it on a website per say I only access it from the IP address for WHM. I now want to add the domain to the IP address and add a cert to it as well. I also would like to make a portal so customers can access their CPanel. I already bought a Domain name off of Godaddy but not sure how to add it to the IP address.

YTou first need to set a hostname, like server.domain.com. Then in the godaddy dns for domain.com set the server.domain.com A record to point to your server IP. That will let you get service ssl certififcates for the server hostname. Then you can go about adding accounts.
