Hi @ijohnmdoep,

I’m not sure I entirely understand the question, can you please elaborate exactly? Additionally, Let’s Encrypt is a separate company providing SSL certificates so it’s not really related to DigitalOcean in any way.

Let’s Encrypt is a non-profit certificate authority run by Internet Security Research Group (ISRG) that provides X. 509 certificates for Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption at no charge.

I hope that answers your question!
