    I have a domain http://xyz.com in plesk.
    I create a sub domain from plesk which opens as http://subdomain.xyz.com

    How to make it https:// there is no opyion to make it as secure instead of creating a new domain in plesk as subdomain.xyz.com and then making it secure

    You need to create subdomain.xyz.com as a domain and not a subdomain. Then you will have the option to allow ssl.

    Thanks Troy

    I figured out a way to do it through the httpd.include file in conf folder. Now subdomains inside my conf folder also can be secure.

    Actually saving 1 domain licence :)

    You may want to consider using a vhost.conf file to make your change to the subdomain. I had trouble with Plesk overwriting the httpd.include file when I would update the domain through Plesk. I found somewhere else on this forum to use a vhost.conf in the conf directory instead and it won't be overwritten. Not sure what you changed, but it should work in your case too. After making the changes you will need to run this for the changes to take.

    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng --vhost-name=domain.com
    service httpd restart
