* Let’s Encrypt is compatible with all current browsers and mobile devices. Some legacy services such as Windows XP will not recognize Let’s Encrypt as a secure service. The percentage is based on averages of browsers and devices used by top 100,000 websites.
** For Let’s Encrypt we will aid in configuring an .htaccess redirect and diagnosing any SSL errors. Instructions on resolving these errors will be provided to the customer, but limited assistance with remedying them will be provided.
*** While Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates are issued for 90 days, it is recommended that renewal take place every 60 days to avoid potential outages on Let’s Encrypt’s network. GreenGeeks provides automated renewal, however, we cannot be responsible for failed issuance.
