Help Please my brain is fried and I am lost. I am no expert by any means and in this ever changing cyber world I may have bitten off more than I can try to chew. Maybe that's why I put this whole site off for 2 months, But I need to figure this out and get a certificate in place as I am working on a site for a couple with limited income. The site is a supplement to the retirement they get and since it is going to be eCommerce I have to have SSL in place for everyone's safety and Site 5 support told me to go to Let's Encrypt to get a free cert and then they would install it since they do not support CertBot.
Yet once here in reading it says to use CertBot so now I am confused more and need some help / clarification as site 5 wants $39 for a SSL cert.
Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
