Get your SSL Certificate for Free and Install it in 60 Seconds!

Community Help...Linux Users ...Windows users are rare

1) make sure you have your binding setup for Both [ and] in IIS


First visit

[enter only one domain without the www]
then create free ssl certificate
note: you should have the www. version showing also.
Select Manual Verification - Super fast
Manually Verify Domain

ok here's the thinking part:

Go into your root directory of your domain and add this exact folder and sub folder.

Create 2 folder in your domain
The First Directory is exactly without the quotes ".well-known"
The Sub Directory under ".well-known" is "acme-challenge"

.wellknown>acme-challenge> paste 2 files here only

Note the dot in front of wellknown is a MUST.

Verify successful upload by visiting the following links in your browser
This should show random alphanumeric characters.

Once this file shows in your web browser STOP and continue to Part 2 Below.


2) Run letsencrypt.exe on your webserver only (right click run as administrator) (scan it too :))

3) Just select the number of your website you want the ssl for.


select number 1 then hit enter
follow instructions that my cat can follow.

Remember these certificates expire in exactly 90 days so either add the reminder email in this program now here or google calendar/reminders. Do it right now.

Go check IIS Binding Settings: You should see New binding automatically setup with the HTTPS: 443 setup

Run this again in 90 days but this time it will remove old ssl certificates and install new ones.

Note: You will have to generate a separate ssl for and one for unlit they release the wildcard * one shortly.

there you go.

If you need the BAR to turn GREEN entirely then you need to pay and be vetted with a "EV certificate"
Extended Validation Certificate which will give you coverage up to 1 million dollars and is only for businesses that can be validated.

Use this for now then make your millions and get an EV certificate.

This post will help many as SSL can be confusing.

Download the following verification files by clicking on each link below
Download File #1
Download File #2

Create a folder in your domain named ".well-known" if it does not already exist.

If you use Windows you may have to add a dot at the end of the folder name in order to create a folder with a dot at the beginning.

Create another folder in your domain under ".well-known" named "acme-challenge" if it does not already exist
Upload the downloaded files to the "acme-challenge" folder
Verify successful upload by visiting the following links in your browser

If the files do not show random alphanumeric characters or shows an error then recheck that you are uploading in the correct place.

Also try viewing the page source (Right-click then click "view page source") of the above links to make sure nothing else shows up but the verification file contents. If you use IIS then you may have to change your server config so that files without an extension (or the wildcard MIME type) serves as text/plain. Contact your host if you are unsure.
