We now offer free SSL certificates using the new Cpanel AutoSSL.
To issue a new certificate or to renew a certificate, you need to make sure the following prerequisites are passed:
There are two important prerequisites to be met in order for a certificate to be able to issue:
- The domain name(s) you want to be signed must be pointing to this cPanel server already
- Cpanel must be able to visit http://your-domain/.well-known/acme-challenge/xxx successfully.
These directories/files will be created automatically, but you should take care that you do not have any .htaccess rules or redirections that prevent access.
