Let's Encrypt for Managing SSL Certs on cPanel

Good morning,

I have cPanel hosting and want to utilize Let's Encrypt to manage my SSL Certs.  However, when I try to install any of the needed dependencies, it doesn't seem I have the rights?  Is there anyway to get Let's Encrypt running on this hosting platform?  What else would someone recommend?  This is a small personal website and I do not want to pay $$$ for a SSL Cert.  I used to use StartSSL until their issues...

Hello @CaptainHook. It's possible to install third-party SSL Certificates on cPanel shared hosting. Review the steps here for help with that.
