SSL certificates

I recently copied and pasted a SSL certificate to my domain. Now, I can't find the site.
It said, it is from Let's encrypt. Web host GoDaady

A form came where I entered the domain name. Instructions were pretty forward. Then, it generated Two certificates and a key. That I copied and pasted to TSL. Worked well.

Could you please direct me to that site.

Welcome @Anuraa

Yes, I see you got a Let's Encrypt cert on Aug13 and your server is sending that out.

But, I have no way to know how you got that cert. Sometimes people run a program called an ACME Client to get the cert. Sometimes your hosting service has a screen to get or configure certs.

Since you can't remember how you did that. Can you remember how you learned what to try 2 weeks ago?


Hello @Anuraa , welcome to the Let's Encrypt community. :slightly_smiling_face:

Check this out: Let's Encrypt Certificates on GoDaddy Hosting - Let's Encrypt

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

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:

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):

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

Thank you for assisting us in helping YOU!


Please use CertSage instead of that website you used before:

CertSage is much more secure and actually backed by the support of this community.


Thanks Mike: It helped me to refresh my memory. This was the site. SSL Certificate Generator: Free letsencrypt SSL in minutes - PunchSalad . I am not a big tech man, but, bit intelligent to follow. I feel the above website owner using either ACME or Let's Encrypt framework to get the two certificates and the key for me to paste. I am alright with renewing every 90 days. This, I am doing it free to help one of my cousin. And, then, to another creating some subdomains. I am a senior. Learnt HTML, CSS and bit of JavaScript. I am trying to be busy in good way. Thanks again Mike.

Note: I feel that there is a legitimate, direct way to have that screen from Let's Encrypt rather than through another party.

The most legitimate and direct way that you are going to get is CertSage. :slightly_smiling_face: There is no end to the terrible reviews for the site you mentioned within this community.


Thanks Griffin: Definitely, I am going to try this.

I got the 404 error for point 5 in CertSage Installation and Usage, probably due typo.

I created few subdomains to help my cousins, friends to live making a little business. In case for subdomains, where should this certsage.text should go. With SSL Certificate Generator: Free letsencrypt SSL in minutes - PunchSalad, I managed to get the copies to my subdomains as well. I feel that this punchsalad will disappear in time to come. Thanks again for your helps

You should put certsage.txt into public_html for your primary domain name. That will allow you to acquire certificates for any (sub)domain that uses public_html as its root directory for serving content.


Websites like the one you mentioned require you to download your private keys from them, which is a terrible security violation. They'll try to tell you that they generate your private keys in your browser. Not worth the risk, not to mention that there's a lot less work involved when using CertSage.


Thanks Griffin: I can't thank you enough for the guidance, given to me. I am going to delete the existing one and try to follow the instructions. my hosting is GoDaddy. It says, Requirements PHP 7.0+. Hope, this is something to be present with webserver.
Thanks again for sharing some of your great knowledge free. Tc Anura


You are quite welcome, my friend! :slightly_smiling_face:

CertSage will soon receive an update allowing one-click certificate installation, which will make it even easier to use.
