VPS or Dedicated Hosting - Manage Login SSL Certificates

In order to log in securely to WHM, cPanel and web mail, you will need an SSL Certificate.

  1. Log in to WHM.
  2. Click on Service Configuration.
  3. Click Manage Service SSL Certificates.
  4. For the cPanel/WHM/Webmail Service click Install new Certificate under Actions.

  5. When you purchased the certificate, you received three files. Please ensure you have all three files before continuing

    Paste the .crt file in the space provided, and click Browse. The subdomain name will be displayed.
  6. Paste the content of the .key and the ca bundle files in the spaces provided.
  7. Scroll to the top of the page and click Submit.
  8. In the Server Configuration section, click Tweak Settings.
