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. 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.

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.
