I Host with IONOS. Can I use Lets Encrypt SSL Certs

I host about a dozen websites with IONOS (previously 1 and 1 Internet).
They charge for SSL certificates.
I cannot add software to my hosting facility.
Is it possible to use Lets Encrypt SSL Certificates?

Hi @IDoCanals

I don't know.

That depends on your configuration.


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. crt.sh | 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:

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:

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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):


If you don't have root access and if your control panel doesn't have an option, it may be impossible to use Letsencrypt certificates.
