Keeping track of the installed SSL certificates on your server is useful as they have a certain validity based on the Certificate Authority that issued them. This period can last from 3 months to 3 years and when the certificate expires, your domain will start showing warnings rendering it fully inaccessible to your visitors.
The “Manage SSL Hosts” feature of the WHM control panel will show you all the installed SSL certificates for your domains on the server. Please note that if no SSL is installed on the server, this page will be empty.
We highly recommend checking our tutorials on How to Install an SSL and How to Generate a CSR in the WHM control panel if you want to understand the process of how to create a self-signed SSL certificate, how to generate a Certificate Signing Request allowing you to order an SSL from a trusted Certificate Authority and how to install it. Let’s begin the guide.
First, you need to log into the WHM service for your VPS or Dedicated Server. If you are not sure how to do that, please check our How to access the WHM service tutorial. After you have logged in, please use the search bar on the left side of the page and type “Manage SSL Hosts”.
When the functionality shows up below the search bar, please click on it so you can be sent to the “Manage SSL Hosts” page.
When you are redirected to the “Manage SSL Hosts” page you will see a table section showing all of the SSL certificates installed on the server. This will include both self-signed certificates and certificates issued by trusted Certificate Authorities. You will also find the following information about the SSL certificates.
This concludes our tutorial regarding the “Manage SSL Hosts” inside the WHM control panel. We hope that we explained all of the information inside and you are now able to better understand all SSL components and how it works. If you have any questions regarding this functionality or SSL certificates in general, please feel free to submit a support ticket. You may do that via the Client Area - our Technical Support Team is available 24/7.
