How to force expiry of certificate

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

I have been dealing with some website builders who want me to get SSL certificates
from another supplier … so I need to force the LetsEncrypt certificate to expire early.

How can I do this?

Why? :confused:

You don’t need to do anything. If one CA issues certificates for a domain, it doesn’t prevent another CA from doing so.

(Some CAs may do something to punish customers who try to leave; Let’s Encrypt doesn’t, though.)

Ah … thanks. That’s great to know … it solves another issue I’ve been thinking of. I have a very expensive certificate I’d like to get rid of for another site and I was thinking it was going to be complicated … but not so. Terrific … thanks.
