|Issue:||cPanel has issued a free SSL certificate for your server’s hostname.|
|Status:||SSL will be installed automatically today.|
|Who is impacted?||Customers with a VPS/Dedicated hosting plan.|
You may have received an email from the cPanel team with a subject heading that follows: Your Free cPanel-signed Hostname SSL Certificate. Read further to learn about what this email means and how it affects you.
What Does This Mean?
cPanel has issued a free SSL meant to provide certification for the default hostname of your server. This means you and your child cPanel account users will no longer see the “Self-signed” SSL browser warning when visiting cPanel or WHM. This is a convenient feature expected to eliminate confusion.
Here in the Support Center, you can learn more about SSL and why it is important.
What Do I Need to Do?
No action is required on the part of any customers. This change will be applied automatically after receipt of the email notification. Quoted from the email: “Your free certificate will renew automatically, less than one week before its expiration date, at no cost to you.”
