How to Enable or Disable Let's Encrypt on Reseller Hosting

Let's Encrypt certificates are enabled by default on all hosting, but you can use the steps to disable free SSL certificates as a reseller if you choose to.
Note: Let's Encrypt free SSL certificates may not be suitable for you. Click here for our guide on comparing free vs paid SSL certificates.

Step 1 -
Log into WHM then find and click on the Feature Manager.


Step 2 - Create a name for the Feature List and click Add Feature List.


Step 3 - The simplest thing to do is to tick the "Select All Features" option.


Alternatively, you could tick/untick features depending on what you want to be available to the cPanel accounts with this feature list. The important feature here is AutoSSL.


Once you're done, scroll down to the bottom and hit Save.


Step 4 - Search for and click on the Edit a Package option in WHM.


Step 5 - Select the Package you want that Feature List assigned to and click Edit.


Step 6 - Select the newly created Feature List (it will be appended with your WHM username) and hit Save Changes.


Step 7 - The last step is to reapply the package. Find the Modify/Upgrade Multiple Accounts option in WHM.


Now, select the Domains/cPanel accounts you want to apply Let's Encrypt for, choose the package (even if it's the same package they're currently on) and hit Change


The Packages will be refreshed and Let's Encrypt will be applied. Note that the script which checks for and applies Let's Encrypt certificates runs between midnight and 6 am every night so you may have to wait up to 24hrs for the certificate to be applied. Alternatively, you could manually apply the certificate by using our guide here.
