Same problem as this: SSL for WHM/cPanel Services (GoDaddy VPS)

If the original poster's still around (or cPanel folks know), what details should one enter on the cert request? [servername].secureserver.net doesn't work.

I've been trying to get a cert for SSL for WHM for ages and can't figure out how to obtain one for services (i.e. non-domains) from Letsencrypt. I'd really like to lose all those browser warnings from self-signed certs.

Hello,

GoDaddy blocks the free AutoSSL certificate for the server's hostname. You can confirm this is the case by running the following command:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkallsslcerts
The output is likely to look like this:

"The cPanel Store returned an error (X::PermissionDenied) in response to the request POST ssl/certificate/whm-license: free hostname certs are not allowed by this partner".
You can find discussion of this, including a manual workaround, at:

SOLVED - cPanel certificates self-signed?

Thank you.
