Certificate expiring

I received an email from Let’s Encrypt saying that my certificate will expire on 20 Sep, and advising me to auto-renew, however I don’t have this option in cpanel. I contacted my hosting provider and they said that it should renew itself as it’s pointing to my domain millabout.com.au

Can you please confirm if it will renew itself?
Thank you

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: millabout.com.au

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):


I didn’t found that certificate active in your site… Instead, I found one certificate that was issued aug.18th and would last until November…

I think that’s the autorenewed certificate… (Just not sure if it surely is)

Thank you

Thank you Steven, that’s reassuring that the certificate will last till Nov. I wonder why I got that email from Let’s encrypt … I’m copying the text here:

Your certificate (or certificates) for the names listed below will expire in 20 days (on 12 Sep 18 21:11 +0000). Please make sure to renew your certificate before then, or visitors to your website will encounter errors.

We recommend renewing certificates automatically when they have a third of their
total lifetime left. For Let’s Encrypt’s current 90-day certificates, that means
renewing 30 days before expiration. See
https://letsencrypt.org/docs/integration-guide/ for details.

Hi @millaboutwines

look at your certificate list:


You have one certificate, created 14.06.2018, valid 12.09.2018:


This sends the mail. Your active certificate has 3 names, not 4. So the renew of your active certificate doesn't block this mail.

--> Ignore the mail.
