Today, I have renewed the "Let’s Encrypt’s Free SSL Certificate" that I installed on my WordPress blog site (https://www.techcartnow.com/) a few months back. In this article, I will share all the steps that I followed to renew that SSL Certificate.

Step 1: Login to cPanel and Click “SSL/TLS” Under Security
Step 2: Click “Manage SSL sites” on the SSL/TLS Manager Page
Step 3: Under “Manage Installed SSL Websites” on the Manage SSL Hosts Page, Click on “Update Certificate”
