URGENT: Updating SSL to Custom Built Site with Limited Backend


I recently revised my site after a few weeks and noticed an alert reading “This website may be impersonating “” to steal your personal or financial information. You should close this page.” “Safari warns you when a website has an expired certificate.” “This website’s certificate expired 24 days ago.”

I was told to find out from both Godaddy, my domain holder, as well as my custom site builder who hosts my site. I didn’t realize it was Digital Ocean…

Now I need to update the SSL Certificate and not sure how, where, or what to do.

Please help as I am not very tech savvy and my site is appearing to the public very fishy.

Thanks! Kevin,

As far as I can see your website is using Let’s Encrypt. You can follow the steps here on how to issue a new Let’s Encrypt certificate:

However keep in mind that all DigitalOcean servers are unmanaged, meaning that we do not have access to the servers so you would need to either renew the certificate yourself or get in touch with your web developer/system administrator and ask them to do this for you.

Let me know if you have any questions! Regards, Bobby
