You may not create a domain with a name that is the server’s hostname.

Hello,

I have a server with a hostname lets say server123.myservers.tld

in which I have installed an SSL that I have bought , for https usage in services like cpanel,webmail etc.

Since cpanel offers free ssl certificates, I would like to use a free one, but to order the certificate,
an account with the domain name server123.myservers.tld must exist in the server.

When I go to Account Functions -> Create New account -> and use the hostname as domain, server123.myservers.tld I get the follow error:

Account Creation Status: failed
(XID 8ab7hq) You may not create a domain with a name that is the server’s hostname.

Any suggestions?
Is there any way to get the free SSL from cPanel without creating an account for the server's hostname ?

Nevermind, I just found the emails "Your free cPanel-signed hostname SSL certificate" which had the certificate so I just installed it.
