"Super Easy Way to Add SSL to your Site"

What do you like best?

I just love how easy it is to get your site secured with SSL using LetsEncrypt. Most registrars offer their service now and the best part, it is FREE! I use DreamHost for hosting of many websites and LetsEncrypt just abstracts the user from the nitty gritty involved with SSL certificates.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, their service is straightforward and is easy to use and again, it's free. What couldn't you like about that. I remember the days where adding SSL to your site was not such an easy task and it was expensive too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it, it is that simple. If you don't know how, contact your web host they can help set your site up

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Securing our web applications, protecting users data and following Google SEO standards so your sites don't show "Not Secure" in Google Chrome address bar.

"SSL For All"

What do you like best?

Let’s Encrypt is very easy to implement (its more or less a one-click implementation via our host Siteground). For anyone concerned about Google’s ‘not secure’ tagging that’s just rolled out, this is a perfect solution. Best of all, it’s absolutely free, meaning you don’t have to spend hundreds on an SSL.

What do you dislike?

There’s nothing to dislike with Let’s Encrypt. As a free service, it’s exceptional and comes highly recommended. I've used it in previous jobs too and always recommend using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned above, with Google’s ‘not-secure’ tagging, this makes it simple and free to avoid the tag. If you need a lower level encryption to secure your site, this is the way to go and will help you to cut your costs. We currently use it to secure our sites that have contact forms on them, so I cant say how well it holds up for transactions etc.

"Free SSL Certificates"

What do you like best?

Its very easy to install and use, in their website they have a lot of documentation, and a autoinstall script.

We use a plesk panel and it has a built in app to get letsencrypt certficates and is almost instantly.

It is very handy and yyou can use the certificate to various things as HTTPS or FTPS etc...

What do you dislike?

I really dont have anything bad to say about this service

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to protect your website and your online services you should try this service

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It secures the connection between the customers and us on our website and that gives more reliability to customers if they need to make some type of payments on the website or input some of their personal data.

Also we secure our ftp and mail with the certificate issued by them and we are protected against MITM attacks

"Free SSL Certificate for you website"

What do you like best?

I love that Let's Encrypt offers a free solution towards getting an SSL for your website without having to spend a crazy amount of money a year.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the manual installation of installing an SSL Encryption. You also have to renew it every 6 months by reinstalling a new certificate each time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for the solution with Google Marking your page Not Secure, or just want that HTTPS professionalism, I recommend using Let's Encrypt to get that for free!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Lets Encrypt we were able to tackle out the problem with Google Chrome marking websites without an SSL certificate as "Not Safe". We are now able to avoid that free of cost with Let's Encrypt!

"It is a great free SSL "

What do you like best?

This is a great tool that gives you and SSL for free that is what makes it great!

What do you dislike?

I like this free SSL as i use it on a lot of my servers but i wish it could allow you to keep the SSL for longer than a few months a year would be ideal

Recommendations to others considering the product

I just wish that it would allow you to create an SSL for a full year. But free is free but just need to set a calendar reminder to renew it which they made very easy to do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it for free SSL certs on wordpress sites, it is helping with SEO for small businesses

"Security is everywhere"

What do you like best?

This is a free automated Certificate issuer that's reliable and easy to use. If everyone starts to secure their websites, the world will be a better place!

What do you dislike?

The fact that we need to renew every 3 months (but this is ok with me since I automated it) and no wildcards. Other than that this is great!!!

I like that the ACME protocol will take care of doing auto renewals and provisioning.

The initial process of getting setup takes a bit of research, but once done is makes sense.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automated SSL renewal that is free of charge. This prevents us from having to keep track of renewing SSL certificates.
