    Just found it.. interesting indeed

    looks like from the info on their site it's for apt-get (Debian/ubuntu) How It Works so I assume they expect the default Debian Apache or Nginx setup APT repository type installs/structure for it to automate ?

    Also letsencrypt/lets-encrypt-preview · GitHub confirms it's for Ubuntu and Apache and Thoughts on RPM builds? · Issue #15 · letsencrypt/lets-encrypt-preview · GitHub

    Also no support for Wildcards for letsencrypt.org yet Do you support Wildcard Subdomain · Issue #66 · letsencrypt/lets-encrypt-preview · GitHub

    So for now I'd probably stick with my US$39/yr Wildcard SSL certificates + Centmin Mod LEMP Nginx SPDY SSL :D

    For convenience and price letsencrypt sounds easy to setup, but if you had 30 subdomains to cover with https, you'd need to setup 30 certificates versus 1x SSL wildcard certificate

    i believe they could be behind a proxy like Google PageSpeed's service with custom headers or something

    okay found what they're using - they're using Akamai services https://blogs.akamai.com/2015/02/with-http2-akamai-introduces-next-gen-web.html

    Hmm read Everyone can make their website HTTPS for free | _ck_ says... and didn't know that letsencrypt intend to expire SSL certificates every 90 days ! so you need to regenerate them every 3 months ! :eek:

    I have like 80+ subdomains covered on SSL wildcard certificates. I am not re-generating 81 letsencrypt certs every 3 months :LOL:
