    Hello,

    I just did some testing with the "new" AutoSSL feature and seems like it works just fine. Thanks for the addition.

    However I don't understand one thing: AutoSSL is available for all my customers, what about the server domain itself?

    How can deploy an SSL certificate for the server domain using AutoSSL?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Free cPanel-signed certificates for the hostname are generated as of cPanel 56. Here's the relevant quote from the cPanel 56 Release Notes:

    Thank you.

    What if I already have a certificate from another entity. Is it safe to remove it and run `/usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkallsslcerts`? Will it deploy a free certificate instantaneously?

    Yes, it's safe. The server will download and install the certificate when it is available, however note it can sometimes take up to 48 hours for processing.

    Thank you.

    This was my exact issue as well so i used the script( /usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkallsslcerts) as you guys discussed.
    How long before I can expect https?

    It's generally issued within minutes, but can sometimes take several hours. Let us know if the certificates aren't issued within 24 hours.

    Thank you.
