I guess so. It used to be so convenient though. I was in a rush just now and didn’t have any other options so I went ahead and bought an SSL cert for the site I was working on.
One weird thing about ZeroSSL - they now say if you are a premium member you can get 1 year Let’s Encrypt certs.
Since Let’s Encrypt is always 90 days (that hasn’t changed, right?) I’m guessing that ZeroSSL has suddenly changed and no longer uses Let’s Encrypt. The validation directory has also changed from ./well-known/acme-challenge to ./well-known/pki-validation.
Are there other services that help you get a Let’s Encrypt cert via a browser like ZeroSSL used to until today?
