SSL Certificates

Hello, I operate multiple domains from a single hosting account.   Is it possible to purchase one security certificate and use it for more than one domain/website on my hosting account?  Although I have multiple websites, only one or two of my websites require SSL.

 

Thank,

 

Anthony

SSL Certificates are tied to a domain name - there are wildcard certificates that allow for site1.domain.com site2.domain.com and so forth. 

 

Personally I use Let's Encrypt for the SSL certificates on my VPS server as they are free and Auto-Renew. If you are running a cPanel server, you can also use Let's Encrypt but the renewal is manual every 3 months

Re: SSL Certificates

I greatly appreciate your assistance regarding this matter.  This matter has been resolved based on your advice.  One tip for others is that the Let's Encrypt created folders/files didn't show up on my shared hosting server, so I had to select display hidden files, and I also had to remove the .txt in order for Let's Encrypt to be able to read the file and let me move forward.
