Hi everyone! I’m excited to let you now that as of today Jacy The Hosting Guy’s customers can install free Let’s Encrypt Wildcard certificates for all domain names hosted with me. This is an additional option on top of the automatic issuance of the standard Let’s Encrypt certificate that I provide since 2016. Besides making Google rank your site higher, users will trust your site more when they don’t see the warning from browsers saying that your site is untrusted.
The Wildcard significantly simplifies the management of websites with multiple subdomains, as a single SSL covers the primary domain together with all of its subdomains.
If you have not used the free SSL service, you should get it now! All it takes is 3 clicks!
How to issue and install a new Let’s Encrypt certificate yourself?
Log in to your Cpanel and click on the Let’s Encrypt icon in the security tab.
Select a domain name and the type of certificate you wish to install and click install.
In a few moments, you will have a working SSL certificate for your domain name!
Now you just need to configure your application to work via https:// to start using the certificate on your site.
How to upgrade an existing Let’s Encrypt certificate to Let’s Encrypt Wildcard?
If you already have a single domain Let’s Encrypt certificate for one of your domains, but you wish to replace it with a Wildcard one, you can just click on the “Get Wildcard” button next to the certificate you wish to replace. This will install Wildcard to the domain name you have replaced the certificate for, as well as all of its subdomains (except of add-on domains, if any).
