Get your Let's Encrypt™ certificate with DNSimple
With Let's Encrypt™, we fully automate the
request, renewal, and installation of SSL certificates.
We use DNS-based validation to automatically validate domains. No more emails to wait for and approve. No need for manual intervention.
Your certificate will automatically renew before it expires, so you have fewer things to worry about.
We include Let's Encrypt certificates in DNSimple subscription plans at no additional charge.
Why is SSL important?
SSL certificates provide encrypted connections between your web browser and the the websites you visit.
Data transmitted between your web browser and websites can't be read without being decrypted.
This prevents third parties from spying on your information.
How does it work?
1. Obtain your certificate
Select Let's Encrypt as the Certificate Authority for your next certificate.
Enter the name and contact for the certificate.
The common name might be defaulted depending on your plan.
The SAN (Subject Alternative Name) might not be available depending on your plan.
Sit back and relax, DNS is happening.
We automatically create DNS records to validate the domain.
Your domain must be resolving through DNSimple's name servers for this to work.
Install the certificate on your webserver like you usually do.
If you selected the auto-renewal option, we'll send you an email that your new certificate files are ready to be uploaded to your webserver before the current certificate expires.
This reminder is also available as a webhook.
