Yesterday, my blog’s comodo ssl certificate expired and instead of renewing the ssl certificate, I deleted it via cPanel and replaced it with Letsencrpyt ssl certificate which I get for free on my Siteground web hosting plan.
Deleting the expired ssl certificate from my WordPress site was easy. I signed in to cPanel, navigate to the “security” section, clicked “SSL/TLS manager”, clicked “manage ssl sites” link and clicked the “uninstall” link next to the expired comodo ssl certificate.
Thereafter, I proceeded to installing Letsencrypt free ssl certificate. This was done easily by making use of the siteground let’s encrypt tool which offers one-click installation of let’s encrypt ssl certificate. The tool is available via SiteGround cPanel.
The tool also makes it easy to enforce https via the https settings.
I used WhyNoPadlock to check if there is any non-secure content but there was none. The site passed the test.
Kindly note that Siteground Letsencrypt free ssl certificate autorenews every 90 days.
