If that doesn’t answer your question, it would be helpful to know what kind of GoDaddy hosting plan you have and what kind of access you have to the server hosting your web site.

What we’ve seen in other threads here is that

  • GoDaddy still doesn’t make it very easy to obtain or install a Let’s Encrypt certificate, possibly because they sell certificates and want to encourage their customers to buy a certificate
  • Still, it’s entirely possible to use a Let’s Encrypt certificate on some kinds of GoDaddy plans
  • This may require a fair amount of extra work, and many users may prefer to buy the certificate from GoDaddy, or switch over to a different hosting provider that has official support for Let’s Encrypt
