The first thing you have to do is access your cPanel. You can access from HERE or with the main domain of your account, adding at the end :2083. Example, yourdomain.com:2083.

Once you are logged into your cPanel, you have to locate the SECURITY module and click on Let’s Encrypt SSL.

You will see a summary of the installed certificates and the domains and subdomains available in your account in which to install new Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates. In the section “Issue a new certificate” click on “+ Issue” of the domain or subdomain in which you want to install a ssl certificate.
