Hi, My developers added SSL certificates to my domains staffme.co.nz and staffme.com.au and they are working for those domains, but when I put in staffme.co.nz/cpanel it redirects to https://vps13101.inmotionhosting.com:2083 and I get a message that says the page is not secure.
How do I fix this problem? (my developers are currently not working so I'd like to take care of it myself)
Thanks,
Brad

Hello Brad,

Thank you for your question about the SSL security. The message you are getting is because the SSL is created for your domain name specifically. As the VPS redirects to the server name, it shows a message when trying to connect via SSL. It will still connect via SSL, just not as the identity of the domain name.

Kindest Regards,

Thanks for the answer but it doesn't really fix the problem. Let me re-phrase:
I'd like to get rid of the annoying security warning that pops up every time I log in to cpanel and I'd like to do it on any computer. How do I do that?

Thanks,
Brad

Hello Brad,

Thank you for contacting us. You can install your SSL as the Service SSL Certificate in WHM. This will require root access, or you can submit a ticket request to set this up.

Keep in mind if you set this up, it will redirect all cPanels in your WHM to the URL in the SSL, instead of https://vps13101.inmotionhosting.com:2083.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,
John-Paul
