Hello! I just signed in for the first time to my cPanel, and I get the warning "There’s a problem with this website’s security certificate". Is this a temporary thing until I get my website situated? The security "check" comes up in Firefox and in Edge as well.

Thank you for your question about the SSL warning in your browser. While logging into cPanel, this is normal. This warning occurs because the SSL on the server is self-signed. This means it is encrypted but not validated with a third party service. We have a full guide that explains the SSL warning in more detail.

For Firefox, you can click on "Advanced" to trust the self-signed certificate. The browser will remember this and you should not see the warning again.
