In this document we will explain all the requirements and steps you need to generate a certificate without having problems.


- A Linux-powered shell.

- A website with control panel.

- A file manager in which you can upload files everywhere (not required but highly recommended).

- Some free time (usually takes 5-20 minutes to get the certificate)


1. Go to

2. Complete the steps with the instructions indicated (you'll need to press the (how do I generate this?) text label to see the instructions)

3. At the domain verification step, select the type of verification you want. I highly recommend to use the file upload verification method. Just create a file in the folder and with the name the text box (the first one) says and then introduce the content that has the second text box.

4. Finish the steps by introducing the command it indicates in the Linux shell.

5. Introduce the certificate in the SSL option on your control panel. Remember that the certificate is the full key that appears when you finish all the steps and the private key is the file called domain.key. Leave the CA Bundle box empty if appears.

6. Enjoy using your Let's Encrypt certificate!
