Get started with Let’s Encrypt SSL

Based on your feedback, we now offer two different SSL options. We already have the one-year PositiveSSL option, which is an addon that can be managed throughout the Spaceship site. 

Now you can also choose Let’s Encrypt SSL, which is issued for 3 months, completely free, and available in cPanel. 

To get Let’s Encrypt SSL:

  1. Go to cPanel
  2. In the Security section, choose ‘SSL/TLS Status’
  3. Next to your chosen domain, select ‘+Include during AutoSSL’
  4. Select ‘Run AutoSSL’ at the top of the page

Now you can downgrade

Upgrading resources as your projects grow has always been simple on Spaceship. But you may also need the flexibility to scale back and save on things you aren’t using. 

Now you can easily scale up or down between different hosting plans, and be more cost-efficient when you need to be. 

Here’s how you can do this:

  1. Go to Hosting Manager
  2. Select ‘Manage’ for the particular subscription
  3. In the side panel choose ‘Change plan’ then pick your preferred plan and billing cycle

Keep your data safe with AutoBackup

Life is much easier when you choose our AutoBackup addon. It takes no time to get started and just a moment to select and restore your backups. Then you’re always secure. 

You can choose AutoBackup when you purchase your hosting plan. If you already have your plan:

  1. Go to Hosting Manager
  2. Select ‘Manage’ for the particular subscription
  3. Go to ‘Backups’ then ‘Get AutoBackup’

There are also some further updates to AutoBackup on the way, with more backup versions and a download option coming soon.
