Launched in December of 2015, a new certificate authority named Let’s Encrypt entered Public Beta. With the launch of Let’s Encrypt, any website publisher could now obtain an SSL certificate for their website at absolutely no cost to them! Instead of having to purchase a dedicated IP, purchase an SSL certificate, configure and then install the certificate, our clients can now obtain and install a certificate in 2 clicks! We’ve gotten a few requests from some of our more tech savvy users about when we would be supporting Let’s Encrypt. Some of you have already implemented this, as we have been silently testing this feature for about 1 month now. We’re happy to announce that it is being publicly launched today!
What is Let’s Encrypt?
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG). The main goal of Let’s Encrypt is to enable every website to have encryption available, ultimately making web browsing much safer! Stream101 is a huge supporter of this and is very excited to be a part of it.
