Securing Plesk and Mail Server

If you have received an SSL/TLS certificate by one of the ways described at Getting SSL/TLS Certificates, you can use the certificate for securing Plesk server or mail server. The certificates that are used for securing Plesk server and mail server are displayed in the middle of the page at Tools & Settings > SSL/TLS Certificates.

Note: If you upgrade to Plesk Onyx from an earlier version and have SSL/TLS certificates already applied to your Plesk server or mail server, these certificates will not be displayed in the user interface after the upgrade, although they will still work. If you want the certificates to be displayed in the Plesk user interface, re-apply them after the upgrade.
