Is Let's Encrypt stable now?


#1

Thanks for Let’s Encrypt.

From your blog it shows Let’s Encrypt is leaving beta on Apr 12 . So please let me know Let’s Encrypt is stable now and can we use it on our Production Servers? Is there any issue on it?

Thanks

I’ve been using it on production servers since January, with no issues, so for me has been perfectly stable.

10 days ago Wordpress.com announced that they started to use Let’s Encrypt for using customer web sites. In article there is info: WordPress.com has supported encryption for sites using WordPress.com subdomains (like https://barry.wordpress.com/) since 2014. Our latest efforts now expand encryption to the million-plus custom domains (like automattic.com) hosted on WordPress.com. The Let’s Encrypt project gave us an efficient and automated way to provide SSL certificates for a large number of domains.

So Wordpress.com is using Let’s Encrypt for more then million web sites, if this is not stable I don’t know what is. Read whole article: https://en.blog.wordpress.com/2016/04/08/https-everywhere-encryption-for-all-wordpress-com-sites/

But there are also others:



see this thread who else supports Let’s Encrypt: Web Hosting who support Lets Encrypt

Let’s Encrypt just became very serious alternative for issuing SSL/TLS certificates.

Ha I got an email from WordPress about this earlier today!

Additionally Plesk supports LetsEncrypt with a nifty little module as well. We’ve been using it in production since about January as well and haven’t looked back! We are absolutely loving it!
