ow to Install a Free SSL Certificate with Let's Encrypt on Your Website
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates are essential for securing connections between web servers and browsers. At, we offer an easy way to install free SSL certificates from Let's Encrypt directly through cPanel. Here are the steps:
Log into your cPanel account.
In the "Security" section, click on the "Let's Encrypt" icon.
You will see domains associated with your account. Select the domain(s) you want to install the SSL certificate for.
Click the "Issue Certificate" button at the bottom.
Let's Encrypt will now attempt to verify you own the domain(s). This is done by:
o HTTP Validation: Let's Encrypt tries to fetch a specific file from your website
o DNS Validation: Let's Encrypt provisions a specific DNS record for your domain
If the validation is successful, the SSL certificate will be installed automatically.
You can manage your Let's Encrypt SSL certificates by: • Viewing the certificate details • Renewing the certificate (recommended every 60-90 days) • Automating renewal with a CRON job
Benefits of Using Let's Encrypt SSL:
• Completely free of cost
• Automatic 90-day renewal
• Robust encryption from a trusted certificate authority
• Enables HTTPS for better website security
At, we highly recommend installing an SSL certificate to protect your website's data transmissions. The Let's Encrypt method makes it easy to quickly secure your site at no additional cost.
