SSL Certificate installed but

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: themadstatist.com

I ran this command: Used ZeroSSL

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

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

I got it installed on Godaddy but if I use other browsers to view the site, they don’t show up as secured (not in the same way github, godaddy, etc.do). Where it does it Chrome.

I followed this https://www.tenormanmike.com/website-and-hosting-issues/how-to-install-a-lets-encrypt-ssl-on-a-shared-godaddy-hosting-account/ “how to” to a tee. Is there something I’m missing or is that ‘normal?’

Thanks for the advice.

https://themadstatist.com/ appears secure for me.

If, when referring to Github and GoDaddy, you mean that their organization name appears in the browser bar next to the padlock, this is called an Extended Validation (EV) certificate, which requires out-of-band verification of your government identity to the Certificate Authority.

Let’s Encrypt does not issue EV certs.

You can buy EV certs from commercial vendors like Digicert, GoDaddy, Comodo, etc, or resellers that specialize in EV certificates like certsimple.com.

They are not cheap, and definitely not free.

Oh, I just wanted to make sure I didn’t do anything wrong, that’s all. Thank you for clarifying that for me. Very, very glad to strike another blow for open source solutions. (And to stick it to Godaddy for their $70 shakedown that was coming up.)
