This function retrieves the name of the SSL certificate for the IP address of a domain.


cPanel API 1 is deprecated. Do not use this function. Instead, we strongly recommend that you use the following newer functions:

  • UAPI (recommended)SSL::installed_host — This function retrieves information about a certificate that is installed on a domain's dedicated IP address.
  • cPanel API 2None.


 LiveAPI PHP Class
$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
$installed_crt = $cpanel->api1('SSL','installedhost', array('example.com') ); // Call the function.


For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 LiveAPI Perl Module
my $cpliveapi = Cpanel::LiveAPI->new(); # Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
my $installed_crt = $cpliveapi->api1('SSL','installedhost', ['example.com'] ); # Call the function.


For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.


 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We provide this example to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI system. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs.
