Having an SSL Certificate is critical to the success and reputation of your website.
At Rovity, we offer free A+ graded SSL Certificates for all of your domains and subdomains.
In this tutorial, I will show you how you can request an SSL Certificate from Let’s Encrypt and install it on your domains via the DirectAdmin control panel.
Please make sure that you have changed your Nameservers value before you attempt to request for an SSL Certificate.
Otherwise, Let’s Encrypt, the Certificate Authority will reject the request.
Log in to Your DirectAdmin Control Panel
You will have to log in to your DirectAdmin control panel to start the installation process.
If you don’t know how to access your DirectAdmin control panel, see How to Login to Directadmin Control Panel.
Once you have logged in, you will see the SSL Certificates icon under the Account Manager section.
Click on the SSL Certificates icon.
In this SSL Certificates page, make sure you are at the first tab, that says Free & automatic certificate from Let’s Encrypt.
Here, default selected options are the recommended options.
Key Size (bits): 4096
Certificate Type: SHA256
Select the checkbox against the Let’s Encrypt Certificate Entries; then it will select all available domains, including sub-domains.
If you have any values such as pointing to external resources, please unselect that value. Otherwise, the SSL Certificate request may fail.
For example, if Google’s G Suite manages your emails, then you must exclude those values.
Now click on the SAVE button.
Our system will now show you a message like the one above.
Once the request to Let’s Encrypt finished then our system will install the SSL Certificates.
Congratulations, You made it! 😍
Our system will renew your SSL Certificates automatically, so you don’t need to perform this step every time.
