How to get free SSL certificate


#1

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: ooisolutions.net

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: hostgator

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):yes

Hi @rajasekhar79,

What kind of Hostgator plan are you using? Do you administer your server with a cPanel control panel?

If so, you should be able to use the AutoSSL feature inside of cPanel, which will request and install a free certificate automatically. (According to previous discussions on the forum, that certificate might be from a different CA rather than Let’s Encrypt.)

Hi @rajasekhar79,

A few hours after you point your domain to the HostGator server, you would receive a Comodo (cPanel branded) certificate issued by AutoSSL (on cPanel)

If you does not receive the certificate after one day, please contact HostGator support…

(cPanel branded certificates could take a long time before issued and installed, but HostGator choose that certificate instead of let’s encrypt certificate anyway)

Thank you
