I am using cPanel for more websites and using free Cloudflare SSL to enable https for them but it is pretty complex when installing SSL because I had to do many steps to finish installing SSL for websites. I am wondering if there is an easiest way to install SSL for a website with cPanel without requiring too many configurations or setups? What are your ways? please recommend me. Thanks!

I am using the option from the WHM named Install the SSLY Certificate. You will need to paste SSL certificate , private key and CA bundle under the Install SSL option. At the initial stage, you will need to select the option for the IP address on which you would like to install the SSL certificate. You can either install SSL certificate on the shared IP address or dedicated IP address.

Proceed by clicking on the Install button.

You can also add a module for Let's Encrypt or auto SSL. The third method would be to install the SSL manually by using Certificates as mentioned above.

Hello

Go for Let's Encrypt. Enable AutoSSL from whm and point domain to server. cpanel will automatically install Let's Encrypt SSL on your domain. To confirm SSL status you can use https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html

Installing premium SSL or external ones will involve a lot more steps, and can't really make that any simpler.
As mentioned above, the best and quickest method is Lets encrypt. Enable it on WHM, then the users can activate it on demand with a few clicks from within cpanel.
