Are there plans to support Let's Encrypt for SSL?

We do support Let's Encrypt.

You can request the free SSL in the My Domains -> Hosted Domains section of your account. Click on Edit Domain and update the Shared IP to a Shared IP for SSL and then the SSL Certificate field will automatically update to Request Let`s Encrypt SSL.

Finally just click on Edit Domain and the request will be processed.

Note that the domain you are requesting the Let`s Encrypt SSL must be using our NS records, because the SSL validation procedure is DNS based, so the domain should be pointed to your account.

It takes about 30 minutes for the SSL to be issued and installed.

Once your website is reachable with https you can force a https redirection. To check if the SSL is operational clear your browser`s cache and try loading your website with https -

If you wish to force a https redirection you need to do it with a command in the .htaccess file, located in the main domain directory.

The redirection command should be placed in the beginning of the .htaccess file:

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

For further information and assistance please open a Support Ticket from the Help section of your Hosting Control Panel.
