Symantec CryptoExec for cPanel & WHMCS Makes SSL Administration Easy for Hosting Providers

Created on Jul 22 2015, 8:23 PM by Brook Chelmo

Symantec would like to introduce the new CryptoExec for cPanel and WHMCS for hosting providers.  CryptoExec cPanel & WHMCS allows automating the SSL issuance process to mitigate errors and remove the manual steps in ordering and administration of SSL certificates for customers.  The intuitive and easy to use GUI helps customers buy and install SSL certificates.  Here is how it works:

WHMCS Benefits

The solution enables partners to utilize the popular WHMCS for billing/procurement of Symantec, GeoTrust, RapidSSL, and Thawte SSL and code-signing certificates and to provide a shopping cart experience.  The partner can also offer Trust Seals through WHMCS. 

One other advantage of the solution is the flexibility offered for purchase through the support for either a voucher-based path or a classic SSL-based path. The voucher-based path is recommended for partners who have both cPanel and WHMCS so a customer can buy vouchers in WHMCS and redeem them in cPanel. The classic SSL path is recommended for partners who use WHMCS but not cPanel. 

cPanel Benefits

CryptoExec also enables cPanel, the popular control panel solution for hosting providers. Partners can utilize this solution to redeem vouchers purchased through WHMCS and automatically install all SSL certificate types without any manual intervention.

Through cPanel, the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) generation is completely automated for partners who support both WHMCS and cPanel.  Additionally, the end customer will see live status messages on the progress of the certificate’s validation and installation.  cPanel will also provide a list of existing Symantec SSL certificates and the details related to each certificate. Through CryptoExec the complete lifecycle of an SSL certificate is covered; users can reissue, revoke and renew all SSL certificates through this solution. 

CryptoExec cPanel and WHMCS modules also provide troubleshooting capability to hosting provider for the orders placed through WHMCS and cPanel.
