2. Navigate to Account Manager >> SSL Certificates

3. Click on the first tab Free & automatic certificate from Let’s Encrypt

4. Select the addresses for which you want SSL certificates. In most cases, you will want to secure domain.com, www.domain.com and mail.domain.com.

5. Click the SAVE button. The SSLs will be installed and you will be redirected to a page where you will see the details. A confirmation message will be displayed:

LetsEncrypt request successful for:
