    Checking up on Letsencrypt (IdenTrust) market share for SSL certificates show that is is currently ranked #2 with 32.8% of the market just behind Comodo at 38% Market share quarterly trends for SSL certificate authorities, December 2017. DigiCert Group jumped to 3rd place after absorbing Synmantec SSL cert business.
    • Comodo peaked at 44.2% in Jan 2017 but has been falling ever since with Letsencrypt growing from 18.8% in Jan 2017 to 32.8% on Dec 29, 2017. I am sure Letsencrypt will be growing even more since next month Jan 2018 will be the start of when Letsencrypt adds SSL wildcard certificates to it's free offerings :)
    • With demise of Symantec, the big 5 for SSL providers are now, Comodo, Letsencrypt/IdenTrust, DigiCert Group, GoDaddy Group and GlobalSign
    • Centmin Mod LEMP stack's Letsencrypt integration support is contributing to those numbers too https://centminmod.com/acmetool :D

    I am part of the Letsencrypt stat pool! Thanks to centminmod :)

    I am looking forward to the wildcard option. By Dec 2018 they will be king of the mountain.

    "Let’s Encrypt will begin issuing wildcard certificates in January of 2018."
    Is there a specific date as ETA? 1 January 2018 or what else?
