As we all know how to enable AutoSSL for a cPanel account. Please refer this link https://www.interserver.net/tips/kb/enable-manage-autossl-whmcpanel/ if you don’t know how to manage AutoSSL in WHM.

If I enabled AutoSSL for a cPanel account, the SSL checker will check SSL certificate of all domains of their account in every 24 hours. While checking this, the SSL provider will automatically install a certificate if the domain has not a valid certificate. Consider the scenario, if you have cPanel account and it has more than 1 domain and you want to enable AutoSSL for domains except for one domain. By default, the AutoSSL provider will install SSL certificate for all domains. This tutorial will help you how to disable AutoSSL for a particular domain of the cPanel account.
