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.
Now click on “Download Free SSL Certification”.
Step 4 – Creating Account
In next step, sslsforfree.com will ask you to create an account. We strongly recommend that you create an account because LetsEncrypt SSL certificates expires in 3 months (Why?). You can buy SSL certificates from us which has expiry date of 1 year.
Next, click on Download All SSL Certificate Files. This will download a zip file containing three files.
Step 5 – Installing SSL Certificate in cPanel
Login to your cPanel control panel using the login information provided in welcome email. Search for SSL certificate.

Static File Hosting – Step by Step Guide
CMS Launcher – your business hosting partner
If you are like me, and you looking for some serious and dedicated hosting company for your future business, you probably encounter many difficulties when trying to choose the best one. There are so many issues to consider like cost, storage, uptime, customer support, security, and so on. It’s easy to get lost in all the options you have to choose from, and after some time your head is full and you are probably going to give up anyway, or worse, chose wrong hosting provider and further increase your frustration, end up wasting your money and time that can be otherwise spent on building your business.
One of the most important things with hosting companies is transparency. You need to know exactly what you paying for. No hidden fees, no extra fees or tiny fonts that are hard to read. This is your first step to identify good and honest hosting provider.
Some of the questions to ask yourself:
- Can they offer me a fast website?
- What is my level of security with them?
- Do I have email hosting or forwarding?
- Are fees clear and understandable?
- What are my upgrading options?
- Can I try it before I buy it?
- Is customer support here 24/7?
- Do they offer the money back guarantee?
All these questions arise when you try to figure out what to do, and answering those questions direct you towards your final goal: A good, reliable, and durable hosting provider.

The second most important thing is a customer support. When you get in the problem, and your website is down, you need to solve this quickly. Yesterday would be nice. After some time without answers, you end up staring at the wall and asking yourself: ”is this my choice? Is this best I can do?”. And you are back at the beginning. This is why good customer support means successful business. Having someone to solve your issues as quickly and effectively is a must have for a good hosting provider.
Usually, the simplest and most straightforward way is the best approach. You can easily get lost in this forest, and the best way to cut your way through is to properly inform yourself. If you have the option to try it for free, don’t afraid to log in and give it a test drive. Start a free trial and see how it works before you decide to buy.
