All cPanel hosting plan now enabled with free Auto SSL.

What is AutoSSL? Free SSL.

AutoSSL is activated by default in your hosting account as it automatically installs and renews cPanel/Sectigo certificates for each domain in cPanel.
AutoSSL performs an automatic check of all domains and if necessary install new or renews the already installed cPanel/Sectigo certificates.
Through cPanel » SSL/TLS Status you can manage AutoSSL, perform a check or exclude a specific domain from AutoSSL.
You can now enable the AutoSSL in your cPanel.
Make sure the website is pointing to your server with us. Use a DNS checker like DNS Propagation Checker to make sure the IP address of the A record is the same as your server IP.
