How do I get a certificate for TSO Host?

My domain is: elisiabrown.com

My web server is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: TSO Host

I can login to a root shell on my machine: (I don't know)

I'm using a control panel to manage my site: Yes

My hosting provider no longer issues certificates from my cpanel and sent the following to me:

'The new cPanels no longer come with free Let`s Encrypt SSL . You need to contact Let's Encrypt authorities or any open source SSL provider to learn how to manually install the certificate using the SSL/TLS tool on the cPanel'

I'm not a developer, so I have no idea what this means :confused:

It means you should choose a different web host, one that isn't actively user-hostile. There are lots of them out there that integrate Let's Encrypt or other free TLS certificates in their control panels.

Thank you so much – I've been considering this! It's very user-hostile...

My advice would also be to change hosting provider to one which does have Let's Encrypt integration and has it enabled automatically for every client for free.

If that is not an option, you might want to consider using CertSage (CertSage ACME client (version 1.3.0) - easy webpage interface, optimized for cPanel, no commands to type, root not required). It's mainly developed for the GoDaddy hosting provider, but there's a good chance it also works with TSO Host I think.

Thank you for this information!

Do you recommend any hosting provider in particular? It might be time to change.

You are correct. CertSage has worked well for many tsoHost customers.
