    Hello! I don't know cPanel very well yet so I'm asking if it's possible to setup a wildcard sertificate for *.domain.com so that each customer could use his own subdomain like customer1.domain.com, customer2.domain.com and so on?

    I know how I would do this with just an Apache server without cPanel. But in cPanel, is the only way to install the same cert, key and CA for each account separately or is there some global way to do it?

    Thank you for your support!

    Hello,

    Using Same cert, key and CA not possible to install SSL certificate for different domain on cpanel server.

    SSL cert,key and CA generated by domain name so it's not possible.

    Hello :)

    Yes, you must install the same certificate, key, and CA for each host separately. The root user may install a wildcard certificate on a collection of subdomains that are associated with a single root domain on multiple IP addresses. If multiple IP addresses are used, a user on the server must not own the root domain. Source:

    Thank you.
