Set up Let's Encrypt certificate

Navigate to the desired website & domain that you would like to protect with a free SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt.

Then select the Let's Encrypt button under Websites & Domains.

Then select the option Install free basic certificate from Let's Encrypt under More options and confirm the option with the Install button.

In addition to the primary domain, you can also secure the www. or webmail. subdomain using the Let's Encrypt certificate.

If you select Issue SSL/TLS wildcard certificate (protect wildcard domain), you must also configure a DNS entry via the zone administration. By selecting the SSL/TLS wildcard certificate, no automatic renewal takes place and the certificate must be renewed manually.

Then click on the Install button to request the certificate.

After successful verification, a message appears stating that the certificate has been successfully installed.
