    Hi, here Manage AutoSSL - Documentation - cPanel Documentation I have read this

    Certificates that cPanel, Inc. provides through AutoSSL can secure a maximum of 200 domains per certificate (Apache virtual host).
    Certificates that Let's Encrypt provides can secure a maximum of 100 domains per certificate.
    This affects Let's Encrypt's limit of 20 certificates per week that may contain a domain or its subdomains.
    For example, for the domain, AutoSSL automatically includes in the certificate.
    If the corresponding www. domain does not pass a DCV test, AutoSSL will not attempt to secure that www. domain.
    This affects Let's Encrypt's limit of 20 certificates per week that may contain a domain or its subdomains.

    I am not sure if I understand this... I can only receive 200 or 100 domains SSLs in one dedicated server?
    And also it means that I can only receive 20 new SSLs per week?

    Hello @fmosse,

    I moved this post to it's own thread.

    The limit is per Virtual Host as opposed to the entire server. The following document explains the definition of a virtual host:

    How Your Server Handles Domains and Virtual Hosts - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Regarding the weekly limit with Let's Encrypt, it will issue a maximum of 20 certificates per week that contain a domain or its subdomains. If you include subdomains of a domain on more than 20 certificates, Let's Encrypt will issue those during the next window, up to the limit for that week.

    Thank you.
