    I have a SSL for hostname but it doesn't work when I access ISPconfig panel with IP address.
    Is SSL works only for that hostname so I must generate new SSL for IP or what?

    Does your certificate include the ip address as a san (subject alternative name)? If not, you'll get an error that the "name" you connected to (the ip address) is not found in the certificate.

    Of course. Clearly the ssl is for your hostname, not others including your ip.

    You can use self-signed certs for your ip if you want or need it but I'd personally prefer to leave it with no https.
