How to renew a certificate that is expiring?

My domain is:

My hosting provider: Greengeeks

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

I have the access from cpanel to the SSL/TSL screen where I can manage my certificate. I saw from the list on Let’s encrypt that GreenGeeks doesn’t provide support for this certificate. But since I have access to the cpanel page I was wondering if I can manage to add the new certificate, if yes how?

It depends how you got the certificate.

Firstly, ask your web host whether they support cPanel AutoSSL or Let’s Encrypt plugin. If they do, use that instead of installing the certificate manually.

Otherwise, you will need to do it manually (using zerossl or httpsforfree), and add it in the cPanel SSL/TLS Manager, using the same interface as this tutorial.

There is also the option of trying to use Certbot with cPanel:

You are likely using AutoSSL, so it should automatically renew for you. You can check if you are using AutoSSL by in your cPanel going to the “Security” section and clicking on SSL/TLS Status you should see something like this:

If we check your certificates issued by Let’s Encrypt at, we can see it seems to renew about every 2 months.

Did you renew your certificate every 2 months manually? Or is this something which is happening automatically the past year?

Looking at the day of the past renewals for and, that certificate should already have been renewed on the 7, 8 or 9th of December. So it’s a little bit late.
