SSL Certificates Are More Important Now Than Ever

A secure web is here to stay


SSL For Free
Free SSL Certificates in Minutes
Free Wildcard Certificates Now Supported

  • 100% Free Forever - Never pay for SSL again. Thanks to Letsencrypt the first non-profit CA.
  • Widely Trusted - Our free SSL certificates are trusted in 99.9% of all major browsers.
  • Enjoy SSL Benefits
    • Protect user data & gain trust
    • Improve Search Engine Ranking
    • Prevent forms of website hacking

How It Works:
  • Let's Encrypt is the first free and open CA   We generate certificates using their ACME server by using domain validation.
  • Private Keys are generated in your browser and never transmitted.   For modern browsers we generate a private key in your browser using the Web Cryptography API and the private key is never transmitted. The private key also gets deleted off your browser after the certificate is generated. If your browser does not support the Web Cryptography API then the keys will be generated on the server using the latest version of OpenSSL and outputted over SSL and never stored. For the best security you are recommended to use a supported browser for client generation. You can also provide your own CSR when using manual verification in which case the private key is handled completely on your end.

Advanced Options

  • Free Wildcard SSL Certificates   Wildcard certificates allow you to secure any subdomains under a domain. If you wanted to secure any subdomains of that you have now or in the future you can make a wildcard certificate. To generate wildcard certificates add an asterisk to the beginning of the domain(s) followed by a period. Wildcard domains do not secure the root domain so you must re-enter the root domain if you want it also secured under one certificate. For example to create a wildcard domain for enter * To create a wildcard certificate for multiple domains such as and enter * * Manual DNS verification will be required.
  • Multiple Domains or Subdomains or Wildcards   Multiple domains or subdomains are allowed and should be separated by spaces (e.g. " *"). If the multiple domains or subdomains pertain to multiple directories then you must use manual HTTP verification and upload verification files to the correct directories or use DNS verification.
  • Prevent WWW from being Added   We automatically add the www version of the domain to the certificate (the www. domain may need separate certificate installation for it to work) if not already added as most users want that implicitly. To remove the www just submit the domains you want to verify then on the verification page near the top click on "Add / Edit Domains" and remove it and submit again.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Is this free for commercial use?   Yes, it is free for all usages including commercial usage.
  • Can I use my own CSR?   Yes, just choose one of the manual verification methods and there will be an input at the bottom before the generate certificate button to provide your own CSR.
  • Do these SSL certificates work for IP addresses?   No, certificates can only be generated for registered domain names.
  • Special Characters and Internationalized Domain Names   For domain names with special characters or international characters we automatically convert it to the punycode representation.
  • Can Verification Files or TXT records be deleted after verification?   Yes, all verification files or records can be deleted after verification. It is used only once for each verification.
  • My website gives a security error after installation   If your website shows a security error then installation was not done correctly. You can try going to to check SSL certificate installation issues and fix.  If you need help with this your best bet would be to contact your host, professional developer or admin for help.
  • My website works but shows a red "Not Secure" or "Insecure" in the address bar after installation   Your website most likely has insecure content which needs to be remedied. You can try going to to see issues and fix. If you need help with this your best bet would be to contact your host, professional developer or admin for help.
  • My website is still not going to HTTPS or Secure after a successful installation   Web servers do not redirect to HTTPS by default. If you want to force it you will have to configure it to force a redirect. This configuration will depend on your server setup. If you need help with this your best bet would be to contact your host, professional developer or admin for help.
