Prevent users from installing SSL certificates
As reseller (or administrator) we should be able to prevent customers installing a selfsigned or 3rd party bought SSL certificate themselves.
It's not possible to disable the 'SSL support' check box within the
'Service Plans' menu section 'Hosting Parameters' because as Administrator we install customer SSL certificates by API. Disabling 'SSL support' will also disable installing SSL certificates by API.

I also want to vote for this suggestion that this option should be provided to administrator / reseller to disable SSL / TLS support for the hosting subscription customers so that they should not install / enroll any certificate by their own,

I would like to add this from our point of view: We have different hosting plans. In the cheap hosting plan, users ought not to be able to use SSL at all. However, users must always be able to decide the type of hosting they want, e.g if a domain is redirect or a web space. The problem is that when hosting settings are allowed for the user, SSL is allowed, too. To enforce disabling SSL, hosting settings must be disabled for the user. The later cannot be done, because users must be able to configure that themselves.
So we end up with not being able to limit SSL usage by the user, losing and important upselling argument in sales.
I agree! Basic feature which is missing imo.
As ISP we provide full service selling and installing SSL certificates for our customers. In that particular case we would like the ability of blocking this function for these customers.

Resellers should be able to choose if or if not to allow endusers to add ssl certificates themselves.
