I use GoDaddy SSL why do I have Let's Encript expire in 10days

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.

My domain is:allthingsfromhim.com

I ran this command:what command goaddy server

It produced this output:expires in 10 days email

My web server is (include version):Windows unknown version

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):Windows

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: GoDaddy

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):I don’t know

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):Plesk

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

because there is a letsencrypt cert that expire in 10 days

Sorry for the writing of the question you did not understand. What you said was obvious.
I see no way to upgrade on a server I have no control over with GoDaddy. Exactly what will happen to the site when this expires and I see no install instructions for someone who is hosting on GoDaddy? Just what does Let"s Encript give me on the site that I don’t get from a purchased GoDaddy SSL?

Hi @bmazak,

It looks like you’re currently using a GoDaddy certificate on the site. If you’re happy with that, you don’t have to change anything and you don’t have to renew the Let’s Encrypt certificate.

Let’s Encrypt sends warning notices about expiring certificates because it doesn’t know for sure whether you are using the certificate anywhere. The warning notice doesn’t necessarily represent a problem if you’ve chosen not to use that particular Let’s Encrypt certificate, or if you’ve replaced it with a different certificate—which seems to be your situation.

The main difference between the two is that Let’s Encrypt certificate are free of charge, while GoDaddy certificates are a paid product (representing an extra charge in your GoDaddy account). Unfortunately, many GoDaddy plans make it less convenient to use Let’s Encrypt certificates than GoDaddy certificates and so you might find that using the GoDaddy certificate is the more straightforward approach, as long as you’re committed to hosting with them.
