I'm having some trouble using CPanel with sslforfree.com validation. Sslforfree.com is requiring I add two txt records for wildcard certificate validation. The first is fine, typical setup, but the second wants an empty/null value for the record. CPanel won't let me use an empty value. Is there a work around?

Hello,


Based on their tutorial provided here: SSL For Free - Free SSL Certificates in Minutes you need to use the manual verification method for this.

Just out of curiosity, is there a reason why you're not utilizing the free SSL provided by AutoSSL? Is it not offered by your provider?
