How to enable cPanel’s Official Let’s Encrypt certificate on WHM/cPanel?

cPanel provides a Free SSL Certificate called AutoSSL Certificate. AutoSSL provides SSL Certificate for your Domains hosted in WHM/cPanel free of cost. Once you enable the AutoSSL for any of the Domains, it will create the automatic request to auto-install and renew the SSL Certificate.

There are 2 types of SSL Certificate providers. (1) cPanel (powered by Sectigo) (2) Let’s Encrypt

We already prepared an article to install a default SSL Certificate (cPanel -powered by Sectigo) for your Domain. You can click on this link to get the same article.

By default, Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate Plugin will be added automatically on cPanel & WHM version 58.0.17 & above. In case, you are not able to view the Let’s Encrypt option for AutoSSL, you can run the below command from SSH.

  5. Now, Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate will be installed on your selected Domain. You will verify it from the View Log Button inside Log.
