Install the plugin:

To get started with Let’s Encrypt, the first step is to install Fleet SSL. While Fleet SSL has stopped its services, don’t worry—there’s an alternative solution that allows you to set up Fleet SSL seamlessly and at no cost.

A company called “i Data Host” provides free!! and a simple way to install Fleet SSL. Visit their website [here]( to get started. Once on the site, place an order for Fleet SSL. This step is crucial because, upon ordering, you’ll receive specific details that you need to run on the WHM (Web Host Manager) terminal.

After you’ve received the details from “i Data Host,” follow these steps to install Fleet SSL:

1. Open your WHM terminal: This is where you’ll enter the command you received from “i Data Host.”

2. Run the command: Copy and paste the command from “i Data Host” into your WHM terminal. This will initiate the installation of Fleet SSL.

3. Wait for the installation to complete: This process may take a few minutes. Once done, you should see confirmation that Fleet SSL is successfully installed.

After completing these steps, your WHM/cPanel interface will reflect the installation. It will look just like the example in the earlier picture, with all the necessary features and tools to manage your SSL certificates. Now that Fleet SSL is installed, you can easily set up Let’s Encrypt and ensure that your website is secure with HTTPS encryption. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a secure site!
