How to obtain a free SSL certificate?

Free SSL Certificate ( Cpanel brand, signed by one of the most known authorization centers: Sectigo), is automatically added after you create a domain in “Addon domains”. The Installation itself (SSL certificate generation) takes couple of minutes most of the time.

The certificate can’t generate if:

  • While adding domain, the DNSs weren't changed for the DNSs of our servers ( certificate of DV type,are authorized by reference to a domain),
  • Instructions in .htaccess file are denying access for our website, redirects it for another web or a web with https prefix.

If you met situations like mentioned before, another attempts of certificate generation will occur every hour.
