Will "Needs SNI?" update later?

    Using WHM 11.40.1 (build 8), I have only one dedicated IP which I will be using for myself and all clients unless they specifically want their own IP.

    This means that SNI will be required.. However, after installing a very basic SSL certificate on my root domain and then looking at the SSL Manager, I see this:

    Domains: mydomain.com
    IP Address: xx.xx.xx.xx
    Is Primary Website on IP Address? Yes
    Needs SNI? No

    I will be needing SNI so the 'No' under 'Needs SNI?' is a concern.. But as this is a new server, this is currently the only domain on the server, and the only SSL certificate installed.. So is it normal at this point? If I added a new domain and SSL would it then change to 'Yes'?

    Just need a bit of clarity because once I start hosting some of my customers, I need SNI to be working..

    Thanks for any help!

    Hello :)

    This is by design. It shows "No" for "Needs SNI" because it's the first domain name on that IP address. Additional accounts that you add on that IP address will require SNI for SSL certificates.

    Thank you.

    Excellent! Thanks for your clarification :) I hoped this was the case but just wanted to clarify as I've never used SNI before so was worried I might've done something wrong.

    Kind Regards,
