Announcing: cPanel & WHM’s Official Let’s Encrypt with AutoSSL Plugin

I posted about AutoSSL before, but in case you haven’t heard of it yet: AutoSSL allows you to enable a feature in your cPanel & WHM account package which triggers the automatic request and installation of Domain Validated Comodo-signed SSLs for your customers, free of charge. Security is incredibly important to us, and this is a feature we’ve been working on for a very …
