    Hi all. My question is the following:
    If I am a Master Reseller on a CPanel server, can I create wildcard DNS to one of the accounts created by me?
    And if yes, how can I do that?

    The CPanel version is 11.

    My experience :

    From WHM :
    1. Find DNS Fucntions and click Edit DNS Zone
    2. Find the domain you want to have wildcard dns and click edit
    3. At "Add New Entries Below this Line" add :
      * 14400 IN A 12.34.56.78
      Remember to change 12.34.56.78 with the IP for the domain
    4. Click Save

    From shell :
    1. pico /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf
    2. Find ServerAlias for the domain and add : *.domain.com after www.domain.com
    3. CTRL+X and Y to save
    4. If you are already using EasyApache 3 for your apache, you should do this proccess : /usr/local/cpanel/bin/apache_conf_distiller --update
    5. Restart apache : /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl stop and then /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl startssl
    6. Done

    Wildcard SSL with one IP / Multiple Domains

    I have a similar issue with a twist.

    I want to install a wildcard SSL (GoDaddy) that will share the SSL with one IP address, but multiple domains. I have a windows server utilizing this scenario, but not sure how to implement on a Linux / Apache / cPanel configuration.

    Any help greatly appreciated. GoDaddy already informed that they do not have a clue, and I'm waiting to hear back from my data center.

    Thanks
