SSL via Cloudflare, can I exclude my domains from the AutoSSL in Cpanel?

Not sure what to do with my SSL that I used before Cloudflare. I am getting these notifications via Cpanel ‘ AutoSSL would normally renew this certificate now, but 7 of the website’s secured domains just failed DCV.’ Can I just exlude the domains of this AutoSSL via Cpanel?


You still need AutoSSL, or some way to keep certs on your server. Since it’s cPanel, you can probably install a Cloudflare origin cert:

Ok, will give a try.

Hi again, I managed to install the Origin CA Certificate, but now the SSL/TLS status gives the following error, is this correct?

Unknown Certificate Type

DNS DCV: The DNS query to “” for the DCV challenge returned no “TXT” record that matches the value “_cpanel-dcv-test-record=qYYK8TqLmw_vookasRHg2xtIPCRIuCumD2ppfKTy_LC7kx_QaXqpJXJlNGsxzoZM”.; HTTP DCV: “cPanel (powered by Sectigo)” forbids DCV HTTP redirections.

It may require the Optional Step 4 certificate in the article I mentioned.

thank you, I also performed that optional step 4. But still that error in the Cpanel SLL/TLS Status. Any ideas?

If it’s that DNS warning, hopefully you can disable AutoSSL while still using the Origin certificate. That should take care of the DNS warning.

Hi again. No sure how to disable AutoSSL. But how big is the problem of this warning? I have now also encryption between the origin server and cloudflare right (the Origin CA certificate installed successfully)? Can I not just let warning be?

If the site works with Full (Strict) SSL mode here, I’d ignore the warning.
