Overview

This interface allows you to log in to a user's cPanel interface to purchase an SSL certificate for them through cPanel's SSL/TLS Wizard interface (cPanel >> Home >> Security >> SSL/TLS Wizard). 

The interface displays a list of cPanel accounts on the server and their primary domain names.

Warning
titleImportant:


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameCAA

CAA (Certificate Authority Authentication) records in the domain's zone file restrict which CAs (Certificate Authority) may issue certificates for that domain. If no CAA records exist for a domain, all CAs can issue certificates for that domain. If conflicting CAA records already exist, remove the existing CAA records or add one for the desired CA.

For example, a CAA record for Comodo would resemble the following example, where example.com represents the domain name:

Code Block
example.com. 86400 IN CAA 0 issue "comodoca.com"

You can manage CAA records through WHM's Edit DNS Zone interface (WHM >> Home >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone) or through cPanel's Zone Editor interface (cPanel >> Home >> Domains >> Zone Editor).

For more information about a CA's requirements, read their documentation.
