    I was asked to do get Familirized with SSL Certificate installation for our WebServices Application .
    I got comfortable with self signed certificate creation and installation under tomcat . (only for knowledge purpose )
    But in general after buying an ssl certificate from a vendor , how do we install it to the server . ( when i googled for this , a lot of tutorials or videos just talk about WHM Cpanel for doing this task)
    Could anybody tell me what is this WHM ?? and to why to register with this , to install an 3rd party SSL Certificate to our domain ??


    cant we do this manually once we buy the certificate from an trust provider ??

    Please excuse if my questions are dumb , as for the first time i was asked to see the SSL Certificates
    Please let me know this , Thank you very much
