2. Let’s Encrypt DV certificate (Domain Validation). It's a 90-day auto-renewable SSL at no cost.

Setting up a Certificate
Setting up a certificate involves a few easy steps. You will need to make a support ticket and provide the follow details. This will allow us to generate a CSR that is used in the process of purchasing an SSL:
1. We will require the following information from you:
* Whether you want to secure "www.yourdomain.com" or "yourdomain.com" in your SSL URL, as only one can be protected by a single certificate.
2. The following Administrative Contact information for the certificate. Note that this cannot be changed once the SSL certificate has been issued.
Organizational Unit (department): (cannot contain special characters - N/A is acceptable if you or your client is unsure)
Country: (cannot be an abbreviation)
State/Province: (cannot be an abbreviation)
City or Locality: (cannot be an abbreviation)
Once we have the above information, we can proceed with the CSR (Certificate Signing Request) generation.
3. Please let us know if you would like us to purchase your EV certificate or DV certificate on your behalf. Please indicate the SSL and the term of the SSL.
I'm buying the SSL, Please install for me.
If you do purchase the SSL yourself, we need the above information to generate you a CSR. Then we can supply you with that to purchase your CRT. Make sure it is compatible for IIS. Once you have the SSL please upload it to your account with us and let us know what subdirectory it's in. We will then install it onto the server for you.
