SSL certificate on a domain

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 12.5 for Linux
  • Plesk 11.x for Windows
  • Plesk 11.x for Linux
  • Plesk 12.0 for Windows
  • Plesk 12.0 for Linux


Website SSL certificate issue. When you request ssl via SSLv3 it gives back the Plesk self signed certificate


  • SSL v3 protocol has no Server Name Indication support, so in this case SSL certificate from IP address is used.
  • Different certificates are assigned to website www.domain.tld and default website for IP address which is used by www.domain.tld


  1. Add SSL certificate to the Plesk repository :
    Tools & Settings  >  SSL certificates > Add SSL Certificate
    1. Assign certificate to the IP address:

      Tools & Settings > IP addresses > > choose new certificate from drop down
