Autossl is a feature that allows cPanel users to install SSL certificates for their domains automatically. It works with Let’s Encrypt, a free, automated and open certificate authority. This article will explain what Autossl is and how it works.
Why do we need SSL?
SSL is a protocol used to secure the connection between a web server and a browser. It prevents hackers from stealing information from your website and allows you to be seen as trustworthy by search engines.
What is AutoSSL?
AutoSSL is a feature of cPanel which automatically installs and renews Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates for you. It can be enabled globally for all domains or selectively enabled for specific subdomains or even individual files/directories by creating custom configurations. AutoSSL works best with Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL Certificates, but it can also be used with full (single) domain certificates and Partial Domain Validation (PDV) ones as well.

Benefits of using AutoSSL
There are several benefits of using AutoSSL:
- It is a free service. This means that you will not have to pay anything for it, even if you are only getting one certificate each year.
- It is easy to install. You simply need some basic knowledge on how SSL works and then follow the instructions provided by your hosting provider on how to install an AutoSSL certificate in your cPanel account.
- It is easy to manage, which means that you don’t need any technical or programming skills when it comes to setting up and maintaining your SSL certificates from now on. Just follow the instructions provided by your hosting provider once again!
- It’s secure because it uses 2048-bit encryption keys that can be trusted worldwide; but more importantly, this feature protects both users (by ensuring their data remains private) as well as websites (by making sure they’re not compromised).
Now you know how to what AutoSSL is all about with cPanel. It’s easy and straightforward, so you can get started right away.
