This article discusses how Sectigo can automatically generate, install, and renew SSL certificates on a cPanel-enabled hosting account.
Sectigo is part of an initiative to encrypt as much World Wide Web traffic as possible. It is designed to make creating, installing, and renewing SSL certificates a simple and straightforward process.
Sectigo is enabled for all new and most existing Webhosting and Reseller cPanel accounts. To see if Sectigo is enabled for your account, click on the SSL/TLS icon in the Security section of cPanel. Then click Generate, view, upload, or delete SSL certificates. Sectigo will appear in the Issuer column on the next page unless non-Sectigo certificates were previously installed.
When Sectigo is enabled for your account, you do not have to do anything else. The entire process of generating, installing, and renewing SSL certificates is done automatically. (The server has a process running that automatically renews Sectigo certificates every 90 days so they stay valid.)
When Sectigo is activated for a cPanel account, certificates are created for every existing domain and any domain that is added later.
Sectigo is enabled by default, but there are instances when it cannot automatically generate an SSL certificate for an account. These include:
