Let’s Encrypt not yet default in cPanel

Recently we posted an article about ‘Let’s Encrypt’, the wonderfully free SSL Certificate Authority.

If your WordPress website hosting is in Australia, you may notice that the option to use Let’s Encrypt isn’t available in your cPanel (VentraIP do have it available) and this might be because cPanel haven’t yet officially included it in their latest build.

Your WordPress webhosting company could give you access to it with letsencrypt-for-cpanel.com if you pushed them, but we are guessing most Australian web hosting companies will just wait until cPanel has it as default so it will be live across all their web hosting platforms.

Lets Encrypt also only recently came out of Beta, so most might be waiting for them to iron out (any) bugs.

In the meantime, if you are looking for an alternative, you could look at www.rapidssl.com.

And always remember, Don’t delay, HTTPS today!
