SSL on one site in a multisite set up

One of the sites on my multisite network wants to launch a service that requires SSL. Can I set up an SSL certificate for that site only and what are the implications?

Thanks :slight_smile:

    Hello Ken!

    I hope you’re well today and thank you for your question!

    You can setup SSL for a single sub-site only and there’s no implications “from WordPress point of view” because SSL certification is handled by the server and not WordPress.

    You will need a valid certificate for that subdomain/mapped domain of your site and install it on the server and then set that sub-site to go over HTTPS connection.

    The only implication is that some servers – mostly simple shared hosts – may not support more than a single certificate installed per account so I’d suggest getting in touch with your host first and asking them whether they allow using multiple certificates with single account.

    Best regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.
