I run a Wordpress website on a OVH plan, so I don't have direct control over the server. I want to disable TLS V1.0 since it has known security vulnerabilities.

Most guides I have found on this have been to change settings on Apache/Nginx, but I don't have that ability. Is there any way to do this through .htaccess or plugins?

The certificate is provided by Lets Encrypt.

You'll likely need to contact your hosting provider. It's possible that they'll upgrade it for you but on the other hand they may ask you to "upgrade" to a newer hosting plan.

AFAIK there's no way to change this via .htaccess as it deals with a higher level of the software stack (i.e. resource permissions and routing). The same is likely true of plugins; they shouldn't have privileges to alter the server configuration beyond what you would have.
