    I have installed a multi domain certificate and would like to change to autoSSL. How can I change to autoSSL, with minimal "downtime" without any certificate?

    There seems to be an option to wait until 3 days before the installed certificate will expire. But are there other ways to do it?

    You would need to go to manage SSL hosts and delete the existing host the run autossl on that domain.

    If you are using the default cpanel provider it will take around 20 minutes however if you switch to letsencrypt in most cases the issuance is immediate.

    Thanks. If I wait for the automatic update to AutoSSL to kick in 3 days before the current certificate one is expiring, will there also be a 20 minutes downtime (with the cpanel default autossl)?

    Hello @nick122147,

    The new certificate from AutoSSL isn't installed until the domain control validation process completes. Thus, it won't remove the existing expiring certificate until the new one is ready.

    Thank you.
