How to configure SSL on CyberPanel is also quite easy, really. The following article will provide a complete explanation. Come on, follow the guide!
How to Install SSL on CyberPanel
CyberPanel comes with Let’s Encrypt as the default certificate to ensure website security. You can get this certificate for free. You only need to do the following 4 steps of CyberPanel SSL configuration:
- Login to CyberPanel
- Accessing SSL Menu
- Doing SSL Issue
- Check SSL Validity
So, here is the complete guide:
1. Login to CyberPanel
Warning Not Secure will appear if the SSL configuration has not been done. This will also happen on the CyberPanel login page as follows:
Well, to activate CyberPanel SSL, you need to login to the CyberPanel admin panel first. How, enter username and password your CyberPanel account in the column provided, then click Sign In.
After logging into the dashboard page, you can access the SSL menu in two ways. First, by accessing directly on the Available Function as in the image below:
Second, access the SSL menu via sidebar menu as shown below:
There are 3 submenu options on the SSL menu above:
- Manage SSL : Used to issue Let’s Encrypt SSL on websites that are on CyberPanel servers.
- SSL Hostname : Used to issue SSL on your VPS hostname. Later, you can access CyberPanel using the https protocol.
- SSL MailServer : Used to issue an SSL mail server. This SSL needs to be enabled to access your rainloop/webmail.

We recommend that you issue the SSL Hostname first so that the VPS management process on CyberPanel is more convenient. Because if it is not activated, every time you switch pages in CyberPanel, a warning will appear as shown in the following image:
The fix is easy, just click on the button advanced, then click Proceed to yourdomain.com (unsafe). But, it would still be very annoying if this process kept repeating itself, right?
3. Doing SSL Issue
When you access one of the SSL submenus, you will be directed to the SSL issue page. In this tutorial, we choose the submenu SSL Hostname for CyberPanel LetsEncrypt activation on hostname.
Select the domain you are using in the column Select Website. Then, click the button SSL Issues to issue an SSL certificate.
Wait a few moments until a notification message appears SSL Issued. You can do the same on the submenu Manage SSL and SSL MailServer.
4. Check SSL Validity
After the SSL certificate has been successfully issued, please logout from CyberPanel first. Then, re-access CyberPanel with the address https://domain:8090.
Click the lock icon on the left side of your url. If the hostname is already using a secure connection, the SSL certificate is already valid as shown in the following image:
