by | Last Updated Nov 30, 2019 | DirectAdmin | 0 comments

Having an SSL Certificate is critical to the success and reputation of your website.

At Host My Website Online, we offer free SSL Certificates for all of your domains and sub-domains.

In this tutorial, I will show you how can you request an SSL Certificate from Let’s Encrypt and install it on your domains via DirectAdmin control panel.

Please make sure that you have changed your Nameservers value before you attempt to request for an SSL Certificates.

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.

Common Name: Your domain name

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 get failed.

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 finishes and our system install the SSL Certificates, you will get a message via the Message section.

Please look for a new notification.

You will see a new message says LetsEncrypt request successful. 😍

Our system will renew your SSL Certificates automatically, so you don’t need to perform this step every time.
