  • Check for a file called .htaccess and add the following code at the top and Save

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Note: If you are installing the Let’s Encrypt SSL on a subdomain, instead of navigating to File Manager >> public_html folder as described in step 6, you will navigate to the root folder of the subdomain. The same applies to Addon domains. Simply put, where your website files will reside is where you place the .htaccess file after installing Let’s Encrypt

  • Now that You have installed Let’s Encrypt, access the site and confirm it’s on https!
  • You have successfully installed the SSL certificate for your website.
