    When I contacted support, I was given this URL as the answer to my support ticket question. Upon visiting this URL and reading it, I find it doesn’t tell me what I need to know–but I can infer it. So I somehow have to have all of my websites in the “domain” list before doing this? I asked if there was a server wide HTTPS certificate. This was the answer. Yet, when I look at the GUI instructions, it shows a blank drop down menu where I assume (correct?) that I need domains actually in there to select them. I don’t yet have that. So I assume the answer to my initial question is no—there isn’t any server wide certificates, just site specific?
