Does autossl work for DNS-Only servers?

Hello,

We have several DNS-Only nameservers (ns1/ns2/ns3). When I go into the Service Configuration » Manage Service SSL Certificates screen, it appears that the free ssl certificates offered by cpanel are not available. I can only generate a self-signed certificate, which gives a lock error in the browser.

Is it possible to use the autossl for the server hostname so I can access WHM without ssl warnings?

Hello,

AutoSSL does not work on DNS only servers, however, are eligible for free hostname certificates through the cPanel store. Can you try running the checkallsslcerts command?

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkallsslcerts

This script is the one that handles the installation of the hostname certificates and should either order the certificate or let you know why it can't be ordered.
