How to submit CSR to Let's Encrypt

I have managed to generate a Certificate Signing Request through my cPanel. How do I go about requesting Let’s Encrypt to issue a certificate?

Hi @valkar

that’s not how Letsencrypt works. That’s “old school” - if you want to buy a certificate, you send that CRS to the CA.


and check your cPanel, if there is a direct support of Letsencrypt. If not, it may be impossible to use Letsencrypt.

One might be able to use the cPanel API to install the certificate, if it’s not available through the web interface. See the script from It could even be automated/scripted.

Thanks for your replies. I have used Let’s Encrypt certificates through SLL4FREE so I believe it should work. Unfortunately SLL4FREE is taken over by ZeroSLL and is no longer issuing free wild card certificates. Otherwise I am quite new to Let’s Encrypt and am trying to learn more about how it works.
