I Have SSL for cPanel Will it Work on Plesk?

If you order or have an SSL for your cPanel hosting, and want to move it to a VPS with Plesk, you do not need to have the certificate reissued. The VPS is running Linux and Apache, so the issued certificate will work.

However, in order to move the SSL certificate to Windows server with Plesk, we will need to reissue your SSL certificate. If you purchased the SSL certificate from a third party, you will need to contact the issuer to have them reissue the certificate, and then have us install it on the new package.

If you purchased the SSL certificate from HostGator, you can make this request via phone or Live Chat.
