    Hi all,

    I want to purchase a certificate so my control panel is secure; dont want customers to get a nasty warning that its an un-secured site!

    I was going to purchase a "GeoTrust Quick SSL" for $109 through MyPlesk.com , but I'm a bit confused if this will do the trick?!?

    My plesk control panel lives at "<admin>.domain.tld". When I create a certificate key, do I specify "domain.tld" as the request url? or "<admin>.domain.tld" ?


    If someone can suggest another certificate that will do this for me, I'd be happy to hear from you. Cheap as possible really to do the job. ;)

    Thanks

    I personnaly did as follow:
    - add a subdomain SECURE to a DOMAIN.TLD
    - bought a certificate for SECURE.DOMAIN.TLD (@ Thawte )
    - Install it on the only IP I have on this dedicated
    - And then, I access PLESK via https://SECURE.DOMAIN.TLD:8443 without security warning

    In your case, I think you simply have to replace SECURE by ADMIN.
