any progress on this?
AfriHost team.

Lets Encrypt - in 2018-2019 has become the standard in entry level free SSL certificates for websites. As you know sites without HTTPS are considered behind now even by googles standards. Lower search rankings and even browser warnings as NOT secure....

You guys need to link LetsEncrypt to reduce SSL costs for these entry level home / small business sites. Even thought cheap SSL certs exist I think you are kicking yourself here by not adding this feature. Its inflating costs for the small fry web sites.

other Cpanels I have seen have this for free, can you add it?

alternatives for your dev team to consider are:

UPDATE:
In hindsight it looks like CPanel provides a automated certificate - "AutoSSL certificate installed!" - wildcard cert to cover - mail, www and root domain.
Well done Afrihost/Cpanel
