To install Free SSL certificate on your website using our cPanel bundle with your web hosting package, follow this guide.
Step 1 – Generate SSL certificate from LetsEncrypt.
To generate SSL certificate, we recommend you to go to https://www.sslforfree.com, which uses LetsEncrypt system to generate free SSL certificate for you.
Enter your website URL in the textbox and click “Create Free SSL Certificate”.
Step 2 – Website Owner Verification
Now, you need to verify if you are the owner of this website using one of the three methods.
We will use “Automatic FTP Verification” for this guide as its the most easiest way to do it.
In the next step, enter your FTP information as provided in the welcome email.
