well it seems cpanel through their dummy out of their pram.

yesterday i got an email that i thought was spam from paypal saying cpanel had refunded me 428, so i check my PP account and yes money in their, so contacted cpanel to see if it was genuine and why.

it seems it was genuine and they refunded me and cancelled my cpanel licences as they did not like that i suggested they placed autossl as disabled by default.

The fact is i do not pay then for licences as these come as part of my VPS packages.

Hi,

This is a very important point that is covered, but whenever a new features is introduced with the next WHM login, it asks to enable it or not with a little bit of explanation and if anyone is not sure, they can just keep it disabled and later on with proper planning implement those... It seems that you may have missed on this pop up that may have occurred at the next login after cPanel update. I have seen this so many times occurring and being an admin, I would like to have those evaluated properly before implementing, so the existing setup is not disturb. May be you will have to look for this the next time because cPanel is implementing lot of things and is like to override the current features too.. I do agree forcing things is not good especially with the SSL when it is known that more SSL provider already exist and already certificate from these SSL would have been installed on the server already those more strongly encrypted than the cPanel is forcing..

Yes i always read the showcase when upgrading for new features etc. which their was no mention of autossl. you could take i may have missed it on 1 server, but on both servers is very unlikely. The thing with cpanel is they know they are no1 and nothing matches them, so they can do as they please

I agree that this should never have been enabled by default. We already had autossl on in v58 so I can't say if there was a notice asking to enable/disable this feature after the upgrade.

We activly follow new features / versions of cPanel and have a small VPS to test them before they make it to stable. We run our production servers in the stable branch and allow automatic upgrades. When a feature that could cause issues is comming out soon we switch to LTS so we can be there when the upgrade happens and make sure all options are ok.

If we didn't follow new versions regularly we would put our servers in LTS to only manually upgrade to new major versions.

was the the cpanel one as this was only brought in under version 60

thesslstore have their cpanel plugin which they call autossl, which allows clients to order SSL cert direct through the plugin.

what gets me is cpanel just recently allowed Let's Encrypt to link into their system and then they bring out their own SSL certificates, so that is 2 free SSL services available through cpanel which does make it less likely a client will pay a host for a basic SSL cert.
