SSL through their built in "Let's Encrypt" feature.

I think it is note-worthy I am NOT using Nginx or Apache for my app hosting. Just straight up Node.js

Hey friend!

It sounds like you’re trying to get our system to deploy a LetsEncrypt certificate through our Load Balancers. How long has your domain been using our nameservers? You may need to wait a few hours if it hasn’t been very long. NS records tend to cache for quite some time.
