Using SSL on a Alias domain using Plesk
I want to use on an Alias domain, SSL. I'm using Plesk.
I can use it for the primary domain but I can't on the Alias/secondary domain.
I'm aware that I can have a UCC SSL Certificate, that is a single certificate that validates multiples domains. But I already have the corresponding "one domain-one certificate" SSL certificates
Any way of doing it?
Thanks in advance!

I don't think it's possible - if I understand correctly - which is that you want an alias for the same website content.
You can have several domains, each with own certificate but an alias would eventually resolve to the same configuration of your webserver and it only allows one certificate.
If you look at the path from a visitor to your webserver.
domain1 -> IP address1 -> webserver -> folder 1 (SSL cert & content) -> content1
domain2 -> IP address2 -> webserver -> folder 2 (SSL cert & content) -> content2
If the alias is supposed to be for the same website content (folder1=folder2 and content1=content2), then what you ask is not possible. If it is 2 different websites, you can follow plesk manuals, for example:
