Hosting Control Panel Enable Let's Encrypt free SSL your Web Site

This article shows you how to install a Let's Encrypt free SSL Certificate on your Web Site from the Hosting Control Panel.

Let's Encrypt certificates require an automated process through their API to renew the certificate every ten weeks. This has been known to fail occasionally, causing outages to websites. Web Wiz recommends paid SSL certificates for business and essential websites. Our support staff manually install and check these and are consequently more reliable. Please get in touch with Web Wiz Support for further information.

Warning IMPORTANT: Let's Encrypt will need to validate that the website is hosted here. To do this, they will connect over HTTP port 80 to each domain you include in the SSL certificate request. Before you start, please make sure that all domains point at the website here.

If you are using a CDN service, you will need to disable any HTTPS redirect. With Cloudflare, this is known as 'Always Use HTTPS'. Once the Let's Encrypt SSL Certificate is installed, you can configure an HTTP to HTTPS Redirect in your website settings here.
