how to create free ssl certificate for GODaddy domain
After reading through all the typical introductory material, getting really confused, and finding out most clients/approaches don't work for their scenario, most people who use GoDaddy shared hosting finally discover that the easiest way is to use CertSage. What ACME client you use to acquire and install your certificate typically depends upon your website hosting provider if you're using files to verify domain ownership (HTTP-01 challenge) or your domain registrar if you're using DNS records to verify domain ownership (DNS-01 challenge).
You may find that another Free ACME CA might be easier (but then again possibly not)
I second that sentiment.
I third it.
The easiest "fix" is to replace the shared hosting package for one that is known to work with FREE certificates.
And here is share from a while back Letsencrypt + godaddy = fail - #2 by _az
CertSage makes using GoDaddy very easy though. 1 minute every 60 days is not a big lift.
But the better answer remains, "move to a less user-hostile web host".
Indeed; Why perpetuate their unnecessary difficulty?
