    Okay - So right now I have a domain set as follows:

    Shared IP (lets say
    IP pool is and
    In plesk dns config, everything with an IP points to

    On my domain registrar ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com are pointing to and

    Now, I want to install an SSL on this domain so I know I need to convert it to an exclusive IP (lets say

    What else do I need to do? Do I need to update the nameservers at my domain registrar? Do I need to keep the nameserver shared IP's in my clients IP pool?

    Forgot to mention:

    Each of my sites will be using their own nameservers instead of two default ones for each site.

    So you already have the following setup on the server: - Shared (ns1) - Shared (ns2) - Exclusive (not used yet)

    Domain name - domain1.com (already on either or

    Domain IP Pool current -,

    Domain nameservers (already setup at the registrar)
    ..... ns1.domain1.com (
    ..... ns2.domain1.com (
    which are the same IPs as your ns1.yourhostdomain.com and ns2.yourhostdomain.com
    Do I need to keep the nameserver shared IP's in my clients IP pool?
    .....Not unless the client is going to have additional domains which would then
    .....need a shared IP, since the exclusive IP is going to be used below...

    Do I need to update the nameservers at my domain registrar?
    .....When you create the new domain at the registrar, you should then also register the client's
    .....new ns1 and ns2 servers using the IPs. THEN you go to the following section...

    What else do I need to do?
    1) Create the Client in Plesk
    .....Fill in info, set limits, IP Pool selection, etc.

    2) Add to the Client's IP Pool
    .....Clients - IP Pool - Add New IP Address - Pick from the Vacant IPs List - Ok

    3) Create the client's Domain
    .....Fill in info, pick IP, set hosting, set limits, etc.
    .....Check DNS entries, make any needed adjustments, etc.

    4) Change the Domain to be hosted on (from the updated pool)
    .....Domains - Pick the domain - Setup - Pull down IP list - Select new IP - Ok

    5) Change the default domain for
    .....Server - IP Addresses - Click on the zero in Hosting column for line -
    ..........- Put dot to select domain - Click on 'Set As Default' link above.

    6) Install the SSL cert for the domain
    .....See the Admin manual page at:
    The first 2/3 is informational, then it gets to the procedural part:

    Make sure you do all procedures:
    .....i) Installing Your SSL Certificate To The Control Panel
    .....ii) Assigning SSL Certificates to IP Addresses and Domains
    .....iii) Setting the Default SSL Certificate

    Hope this is enough to get you through it. Pain pills are wonderful, aren't they?!
