    Default Any issues with changing a hostname ??

    My vps was originally setup with the hostname XXXXX.vps within the cpanel I have changed the hostname to XXX.XXXXXXXX.com as a result the security certificates no longer apply etc. Now for the query, if I change the hostname in the VPSLink control panel to XXX.XXXXXXXX.com will it work ? Will it effect the cpanel license ?

    TIA

    Changing your server's hostname should not invalidate your cPanel license - we have tested this potential configuration issue as recently as April 3rd, 2009 to confirm that your license is bound to your IP, not your hostname.

    Default Security certificate ?

    Ok Thanks. Will the security certificates be automatically updated to reflect the change ?

    Changing your hostname will not automatically update your SSL certificates, however, you should be able to complete any necessary updates through WHM.
