Cloudways, one of the most user-friendly Cloud Hosting Platforms of the world, has added another highly demanded feature to its Platform. Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate Authority is now available for deployment in just one click.

Backed by Mozilla Foundation, EFF, Akamai, Cisco, Facebook, Google Chrome, and Vultr, Let’s Encrypt is an industry-recognized, trusted certificate authority that aims to keep web surfing safe.
The underlying technology behind Let’s Encrypt is recognized as a solid foundation for a secure SSL certificate. For Domain Validation, Let’s Encrypt uses a key pair method to test domain control. After Validation, Requesting, Renewing, and Revoking certificates is accomplished through PKCS#10 Certificate Signing Request.
“Let’s Encrypt is being used by 2.4 million domains,” explains Pere Hospital, CTO of Cloudways. “The team at Cloudways has seamlessly integrated the Let’s Encrypt SSL on its Cloud Platform. Users can install these certificate by just filling a small form. This further enhances the security of our customers’ websites and makes it easy for them to deploy HTTPS protocol for safe data transfer.”
Certain policies of Let’s Encrypt limit its use. A maximum of five certificates can be obtained per domain per week. Before using Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates, a website owner should ensure their web application is compatible with the certificate.
The Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate can be deployed through SSL Management tool for free. Furthermore, Cloudways can handle multiple SSL-protected websites on the same cloud server. This makes Cloudways the ultimate choice for cloud hosting.
