• How to buy the SSL certificate for the maximum terms?

    • views 995

    My current Wildcard from Globalsign is registered with for only one year. And every year you need to update and to reissue it - a process that isn`t convenient. Letsencrypt is reissued every three months. What can I do? I`m ready to buy a certificate for at least 5 years :)

    According to the requirements of the Forum of Certification Authorities and Browsers (CA/B) Forum - the organization that sets the standards for SSL certification, from March 1, 2015,the ability to purchase certificates for 4-5 years expired. This affected all SSL certificates, including certificates from Comodo, RapidSSL, Symantec, Thawte, and GeoTrust, which are popular in the Russian Federation. It means the maximum period for which you can buy an SSL certificate at the moment is 3 years.

    This depends on the SSL provider. Some offer a 3 yr purchase period.
    LetsEncrypt really needs to be updated every three months, but there are scripts to automate these actions. So you do not need to keep an eye on this. For example certbot.eff.org
    We have certificates for free and forever, and you do not need to keep track of anything and you do not need to update anything. Available on all hosting plans, if you use VPS then put VestaCP and LetsEncrypt plugin and forget about it forever)) And the most important thing is, it`s free!
