[SOLVED] Details about the public opening


Hello everybody,

I got my accesses to the closed beta for some of my domains and I’m very happy with this service.
I would like to know if we could have a bit more details about the public opening of Let’s Encrypt, especially at which hour, the 3rd December, we will be able to create certificates unrestrictively. I’ll have a contest running the night of the 3-4th December, and having a certificate on the website we’ll present would be very great.
Also, are the free .tk domain supported?

Thank you very much!


See What time does Public Beta start on December 3rd? and Lets encrypt will support all domain extension?


At the bottom of the page at http://letsencrypt.status.io/ it says:
Public Beta begins at 6 PM GMT on 3 December. The hour prior we’ll be performing last-minute maintenance, removing the whitelist, and other checks before the Public Beta begins.

I reside in Virginia, that’s Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 1:00:00 PM EST UTC-5 hours. If you need to check what time that is locally, you can try a time zone converter like http://www.thetimenow.com/time-converter.php.

Updated: Switched to accessible time converter website example.


Thank you! For me it’ll be 7PM. We’ll be still brainstorming so that’s completely okay.
And great for tk also. Let’s Encrypt will make our job much simplier, and is opening exactly at the time I need it. So perfect, thank you LE team! :smile:
