We are proud to announce the availability of the Snapt Let’s Encrypt plugin! This allows you to add and manage Let’s Encrypt certificates all through the interface of Snapt – in simple terms, free SSL certificates for any service you need.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG). To enable HTTPS on your website, you need to get a certificate (a type of file) from a Certificate Authority (CA). Let’s Encrypt is a CA.
Let’s Encrypt has no fees attached to getting a certificate, and has an automated process, meaning you can issue certificates for all of your load balancer front-ends or web accelerated servers without any costs.
The release of the free Snapt Let’s Encrypt plugin means you can enjoy this functionality on your load balancer, web accelerator or HAProxy installation without needing custom scripts and maintenance to use it. All existing Snapt clients have this available already, and if you’d like to try it we encourage you to get a free trial.
