SSL for multiple sites with unique domains on single VPS2000 with single Public IP

We are using our vps2000 subscription to host multiple websites.

We have configured each of our websites to be accessed using different domain names.

Now, we want to configure SSL and have the sites accessible via https using only the free certificates available

in inmotion.

Is there a way to configure the certificates to function for all the different domain names of the websites?

Right now, we have tried configuring only for one domain for one website running on the vps2000 server instance.

See below sample setup. Please advise details of how to implement the setup.

http://domain1.sub1.com --> Public IP1 of VPS2000

http://domain2.sub2.com --> Public IP1 of VPS2000

http://domain3.sub3.com --> Public IP1 of VPS2000

We want all the sites to be accessible as below:

https://domain1.sub1.com --> Public IP1 of VPS2000

https://domain2.sub2.com --> Public IP1 of VPS2000

https://domain3.sub3.com --> Public IP1 of VPS2000

Hello and thanks for contacting us. If the subdomains are created in cPanel accounts, you should be able to install AutoSSL from WHM > Manage AutoSSL. You may need root access to accomplish this. Then you'll need to find the best way to redirect those domains to HTTPS - .htaccess or CMS plugin.

We managed to setup using AutoSSL in WHM and properly setup the Domain in cpanel.

Making sure that the domains created is pointing to the correct folder location of each sites.


Thanks for the help! Cheers!

Thanks for the reply. 

Our domains are actually setup using a 3rd party domain manager. So our requirement can still be done using AutoSSL? Is there a documented step by step guide that I can refer to for this?

My challenge this time is how to actually generate the SSL cert applicable for the multiple domains.

Hopefully, our AutoSSL in WHM article is helpful. If you have any issues, please feel free to let us know and maybe contact that 3rd party about a best way to resolve this. If its a popular method, we may need to consider creating an article on how to resolve this issue.
