When using AutoSSL, the service will issue a signed certificate for a virtual host when the following conditions aren't present.


  • The virtual host has a pending signed certificate request.
  • There is an existing signed certificate for the virtual host.
  • The virtual host's certificate has not expired.

This can be seen in our documentation on AutoSSL here :




Our documentation on how your server handles domains, and virtual hosts states the following :


  • In most cases, the term domain name can act as a synonym for hostname.


cPanel users can manage three different types of additional hostnames.


  • Aliases (previously Parked Domains)
  • Subdomains
  • Addon Domains




With AutoSSL issuing certificates for virtual hosts, the certificates will not explicitly secure an IP address but a domain/hostname/virtual host.
