* Let’s Encrypt is compatible with all in production browsers and mobile devices. Legacy services such as Windows XP etc. will not recognize Let’s Encrypt as a secure service. Percentage is based on averages of browsers/devices used by top 100,000 websites.
** For Let’s Encrypt we will aid in configuring an .htaccess redirect & diagnosing any SSL errors. Instructions on resolving these errors will be provided to the customer, but limited assistance with fixing them will be provided.
*** While Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates are issued for 90 days (3 months), it is recommended that renewal take place every 60 days to avoid potential outages on Let’s Encrypts’ network. AleForge does offer an automated renewal, however not responsible for failed issuance.
