      Please login to cPanel. Then click on “SSL/TLS”. There you can see option to delete installed certificates. If you are having any trouble doing it, please reach our support department.

    Succinct, clearly written and well illustrated. A very good job!

    One area for improvement that is needed and should be undertaken soon is to explain in this otherwise very good ‘how-to’, why the user may not find the ‘Enable SNI for Mail Services’ check box on this page in cPanel. The lack of an explanation has the potential to create concern and confusion for the user which can easily be avoided. Look to it.
