    I have a VPS with multiple domains. I want to buy a wildcard certificate for the main domain and all subdomains (,, ....); can it be done? or should I move the main domain to a secondary IP (if it can be done).

    I have tried to create my self-signed wildcardcertificate, but when entering the subdomain using https redirects me to the main domain (http works as expected).

    Hello :)

    Please see the following document on wildcard SSL certificates:

    cPanel - Wildcard SSL

    You can install a wildcard SSL Certificate assuming you are using CentoS/RHEL/CloudLinux 6.x and cPanel version 11.38 or newer. Ensure you install the certificate for each subdomain separately.

    Thank you.
