There is no tutorial on Google about how to install free Let's Encrypt SSL on Namecheap shared hosting. I need to install SSL certificate on my website.


In general Let's Encrypt will often require some level of support from a shared hosting provider, and we hope to talk to many of the hosting providers to make sure that they take whatever steps are necessary to achieve that support. There may be some configurations in which hosting providers already allow users to deploy certs without the providers' intervention; in those configurations it may be possible for a shared hosting user to get a Let's Encrypt cert and install it manually.

It will almost always require the provider's assistance to allow the process to be automated on the provider's infrastructure (for example, installing the cert automatically or renewing the cert automatically).

  • I have already contacted with them. They're saying that "Let's Encrypt is a third party company. We cannot help you with installing Let's Encrypt free SSL. But it is possible to install Let's Encrypt SSL on Namecheap shared hosting". Mar 19 '17 at 12:24
  • Find a new hosting company that is easier to work with. Likely this one is still trying to sell SSL certificates and doesn't like that they are now available for free
