    How can the default certificate being replaced by a Lets Encrypt certificate. I want to get rid from the default self-signed certificate but I can't. I've secured my Plesk panel with a subdomain with Let's Encrypt certificate. Can you please add an option to redirect from the https://<server ip> to a (sub)domain on the server which is al ready secured with a Lets Encrypt certificate? Then I can remove the default certificate from the server because it's not in used anymore and also the ssllabs test is much better without the self signed certificate which is included in the test as second (invalid) certificate.

    Hi Pascal, check the section Tools & Settings > IP Addresses - select IP Address and make sure that the default cert is not selected there. You can choose the required one. Also check this

    The default certificate generated during installation has "Parallels Panel" as domain name. When adding a new self-signed certificate, Plesk will require a well-formed domain name, but entering that, will show a prominent warning in mail client of users that setup mailbox using mail.domain.tld as IMAP server.

    Such warning is a red "Wrong site" warning, that is more prominent compared to the yellow warning shown when using the default certificate.

    There would be a solution if only Plesk could generate multi-domain certificates (self-signed or Let's Encrypt).
