    Hello,

    I would like to know the difference between AutoSSL and Let's Encrypt in simple words. I looked into the many threads and linked mentioned in them but can't understand. I know Auto SSL helps us to access the domain - subdomain with https.

    Hello,

    AutoSSL is the feature which automatically installs domain-validated SSL certificates on users' domains. There are currently two supported providers that offer free domain-validated SSL certificates through cPanel (Comodo and Let's Encrypt). cPanel-signed (through Comodo) certificates are offered by default. If you wanted to offer Let's Encrypt certificates, you'd need to install the plugin:

    The Let's Encrypt Plugin - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
