What has happened to They have not answered any questions in over a year.

I have several domains on the same Namecheap account. It looks like all of my websites are receiving the SSL except for one that still had a valid SSL when I set this up. That has now expired and I thought the plugin would generate one for it, but did not. What do I do? I am not super tech savvy, so please be gentle with me.

My domain is:, but I installed the plugin at, but I included all of the domains - these are all on my namecheap account

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: Namecheap

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

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): I do not know

it doesn't look like it ever renewed after first certificate. it will expire in next Wednesday (11/24) but still not renewed. login into that clients admin page? it doesn't set cronjob by itself. There manual has a reminder to do that
search Issue Free SSL (optional): in their admin page to force-renew certificate.


Thank you. I will have a look.

Do you know if I need to install the plugin on each website? I think that all of my websites are subdomains of even though they have separate urls because they are on the same account.

I just got done browsing through their manual. What a nightmare! Please take a look at the CertSage ACME client that I developed. It's worlds faster and easier to use.


Thank you. I am not very tech savvy, so might need some help.

Do these auto renew?

Is it easy to add a new domain at a later time? What do you do if you no longer use a domain?


@griffin, does NameCheap hosting have the same limitations as GD?


At present, no, but since the process only takes a minute, this would only pose an issue if you have quite a lot of domains.

Yep. Copy certsage.php into the new webroot directory and proceed as normal.

As long as the private key for that domain has not been compromised, just delete the associated certificate and private key and let the certificate expire naturally.

Not sure. If @TamieP truly has root access, it would be best just to use certbot. This might cause fights with cPanel though.
