Installing free SSL certificate (cPanel)

You can install the Let’s Encrypt free SSL certificate on your NIC.UA hosting account.

SSL certificates make data transferring been encrypted, and your site will be opened by https protocol. 

It can also help when you need to reduce the number of simultaneous connections to the hosting server.

To install a free SSL certificate on your hosting account go to the hosting control panel (cPanel) → "SECURITY" section → SSL / TLS Status 

Then click 'Run AutoSSL' button

If for some reason there is no such button, contact us and provide the hosting order number and

pin-code for support (four digits) from your personal NIC.UA account dashboard.

After installing SSL, you will need to configure your CMS to work by the HTTPS protocol:

in the administrative panel settings there will be an option to select the HTTPS protocol for opening your site.

If you do not use CMS, then you can set a redirect in the .htaccess file:

Rewriteengine on

RewriteCond% {HTTPS} off

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

After making these changes, the site will immediately begin to open over the HTTPS protocol.
