Hi, please add hostone.com.br (Host One), from Brazil, offering Lets Encrypt since 2017 for all cpanel customers. In portuguese announce: https://blog.hostone.com.br/certificado-ssl-gratis-para-todos-lets-encrypt/
There is also this link to “Manually install an SSL certificate on my cPanel hosting:”
anyone here tried this? wondering if successful, and how often needs to be manually renewed (or if it can be auto-renewed)
Not really. If you have SSH access to your cPanel hosting, you can do things like use acme.sh + its cPanel deploy hook + a cron job for renewal. But otherwise, you would have to manually repeat the exercise at least every 90 days (recommended every 60 days).
At any rate, GoDaddy still does not qualify for this list.
thanks for your reply - if I switch to a Web Hosting Provider with Let’s Encrypt Support: like DreamHost - will that still necessitate “…repeat the exercise at least every 90 days?”
No, the sites on this list support automated renewal of certificates, which is the way the Let’s Encrypt developers intend for Let’s Encrypt to be used.
OK good to know - thanks…
On Godaddy with cPanel
I am successfully using Let’s Encrypt. I have to renew every 90 days, as required by Let’s Encrypt. I use SSL For Free to simplify the process.
It’s a manual process. To the best of my knowledge, it can’t be automated on GoDaddy, but I could be wrong.
The process is simple if you choose to use a wildcard for subdomains (e.g. *.example.com). It takes some minutes for each site every 90 days. If you’ve manually added subdomains (cPanel > Domains > Subdomains), they take just a few seconds each to include.
If you don’t use a wildcard, it becomes a hassle ensuring that you’ve included not only your manually-added subdomains but also every possible automated subdomain, e.g. cpanel.example.com, webmail.example.com, etc. I strongly recommend that you use the wildcard method.
Thank you paddylandau! The tutorial on their page looks good…
I will try it:
GoDaddy Shared Server Hosting - SSL Certificate - DNS Verification & Installation
Ah, I think that that is a new video, because I haven’t seen it before. I don’t have time to watch it now, but if you struggle, post a new thread, then post the link to the thread here, and I’ll chip in with my method.
will do - thanks again!
