Install SSL on Your Hostname & Services via WHM

NOTE: In order to install an SSL via WHM, you will require ROOT access to the server. This means only VPS and Dedicated Server clients have the ability to install an SSL certificate through their WHM. If you have a reseller or shared hosting package, you will need to contact our Sales Team who will be happy to assist with the installation.

Step 1: Once you are in the WHM (Web Host Manager) for the server you are installing the SSL, click on “Install a SSL Certificate and Setup the Domain” located on the left side of your WHM under “SSL/TLS”

Step 2: On the next page you will be provided with some empty fields which you will want to paste the SSL CERT, RSA key, and the CA bundle. Each field is labeled accordingly. Once you have filled in all the keys, you can click on “Install”.

Important: The RSA key used must be the RSA key you generated along with the CSR(Certificate Signing Request) which you used to order the actual SSL certificate with your SSL provider.

NOTE: For the field labeled “Ca Bundle”, you will want to use the bundle which was emailed to you along with the SSL certificate purchased/provided. This MUST be installed with the certificate to avoid any complications which can arise. The CA Bundle will consist of 3 different keys and will look similar to the following.

CA Bundle Example:

Step 3: After you have completed Steps 1 & 2, the SSL has officially been installed onto your hostname. However, there is still one more step that needs to be completed. Go to Manage Service SSL Certificates. Check mark ALL of the services listed on your server (, Webmail, Dovecot Mail Server, Exim (SMTP) Server, FTP Server). Enter the certificates into the boxes provided the same way as the previous steps.
