Today I am going to show you how to disable AutoSSL notifications on WHM? AutoSSL is a WHM and cPanel feature that automatically issues SSL certificates for its registered domains. This indicates that the communication between the servers will navigate to website securely.
Most modern websites has lack of encryptions, most modern browsers sends warnings for lack of HTTPS and SSL encryption. cPanel and WHM have variety of AutoSSL notifications which you can enable or disable from WHM.

Step 2 – In WHM go to ‘Manage AutoSSL’ interface. A new interface will appear.
Step 3 – Click on ‘options’. Notice that there are different notifications available.
Step 4 – You can select all or each checkbox message specifically. If you disable any option of this interface you will also disable the corresponding notification to WHM’s ‘Contact Manager’ Interface and cPanel’s ‘Contact Information’. For ex: – right now all the notifications are selected, the first checkbox enable ‘AutoSSL notification cannot request a certificate because all domains on the website have failed DCV’.
Step 5 – Let’s take a look at the corresponding options in WHM’s ‘Contact Manager’. Open a new tab and login to WHM. Search for ‘Contact Manager’ Interface. The ‘Contact Manager’ interface will appear. Then click the notifications tab. Here is the corresponding notification ‘an AutoSSL cannot request a certificate because all of the websites domains have failed DCV (Domain Control Validation)’.

Step 9 – Open a new tab and login to your cPanel interface search for the ‘Contact Information’ settings. The ‘Contact Manager’ interface will appear.
Step 10 – Click on the notifications tab, scroll down to that notification. You can see that the ‘AutoSSL cannot request a certificate because all of the domains on the website have failed DCV notification. Go back to ‘Manage AutoSSL, save the first checkbox. Now we go back to contact information interface in cPanel. You can see that that option is no longer there.
