    Coming summer 2015:

    Looks very interesting, especially because of the automated certificate management they plan to implement. No more excuses...

    I know about startssl, but the thing that makes letsencrypt.org interesting, is the automated certificate management. No more manually having to install certs and forgetting to renew them is a thing of the past. It will make it trivial to use https on your website.

    While SSL cert is getting cheaper (it used to cost several hundred dollars each year from big name providers), do we trust our sites on a company that provides free ssl?
    What's the catch?

    Part of the cost of getting a certificate now or in the past is the fact that you are basically purchasing liability insurance with it. Which is generally required or desired for store fronts etc. Beyond that its just maintenance and for a small forum who just wants https the certs really shouldnt be more than a couple bucks to keep the authority maintained properly. But there is the whole trust issue still.

    This is really awesome, I just bought my COMODO Domain Validation Certificate, but it only includes the main domain, does this worth getting? does it includes subdomains?

    Edit: I just applied for it, lets hope they approve me. :)

    It includes everything you want, unlimited domains :).

    I'm little confused, they just responded to me and this what it looks like:

    By domain "Domain in Subject" they included the main domain only or it's full domain certificate?
