Hello Lianglee,

Thanks for your question on How to Disable Self Signed SSL Warnings. SSL certificates were designed so that they could be certified and recognized as official and secure solutions for making connections between a user's internet browser and a server. Self-signed certificates allow anyone to create a certificate and then give the internet browser user the option to accept the connection, but only after being warned that the certificate was NOT certified. This means that the warning that you're trying to disable can not be removed -at least from the server side.

We have an article that goes over how to bypass a self signed SSL warning in either Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox, or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Removing the warning should be the user's option, because a self-signed certificate does not provide assurance that the connection is certified as secure.

If you have any further questions or need further assistance, please let us know.

Or.... you could just do a better job of creating your self signed certificate to meet web standards. This is honestly kind of a deal killer. Did you know that because of your certificate issues that the secure email function also isn't recognized as secure by gmail?

Hello DreamSurf,

Thank you for contacting us. The warning they are discussing shows up in a browser when you try to access your server over the self-signed SSL. For example, trying to access WHM via:

You can securely send/receive email successfully using the secure email settings.

Alternately, you can simply purchase an SSL for your specific domain name.

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

Thank you,
