What is Let's Encrypt SSL?

Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).


How is Let's Encrypt different than a regular SSL?

Let's Encrypt is a domain validated (DV) SSL, which does not require any additional paper work to be validated, thus its ideal for any website or any domain name.

Let's Encrypt issuing and validation is basically instant, in comparison to normal SSL certificates which requires extra validation steps, or additional paperwork.

The Let's Encrypt SSLs do not come with any monetary insurance for e-commerce websites (which is typical for normal private SSL certificates) - which for most clients is not really a limitation.


How many SSLs can I have?

You can add as many SSLs to any of your domain names hosted within your account - there is NO physical limit or any cost associated with adding SSLs.

Currently Let's Encrypt does not provide WildCard SSLs, so if you need to add SSL for many sub-domains in the same domain name, you will just need to add these individually through your control panel (for no cost).

If you want to have a WildCard SSL, please check our WildCard SSL certificates page.


Let's Encrypt certificate lifetime and renewal:

For improved security the Let's Encrypt SSLs are automatically renewed every 90 days, you don't have to do anything in order to renew the SSL - this is automatically covered by our control panel and service.

For more information on why the SSLs are renewed every 90 days please, check this article.


Let's Encrypt browser compatibility:

All modern web browsers are supported, the full compatibility list is available here.


How to install Let's Encrypt SSL:

You can install Let's Encrypt inside your cPanel control panel for every account that comes with Let's Encrypt SSL.

Simply navigate to the "Security" section in cPanel and click on the Let's Encrypt link.

For Plesk users, the Let's Encrypt link is available within the main Plesk menu.

For SolidCP users, check the following tutorial.

If your package is eligible for Let's Encrypt (listed above) but you can't see the Let's Encrypt installation link, please contact our support for further assistance.


We received almost a perfect score (4.5 out of 5) from cnet, and have been included in their Best Hosts of 2018 listing. Below is a quote from the official editorial review on cnet:

"The company has a wide range of offerings, but by far, the stand-out feature MochaHost provides is a 180-day money-back guarantee. That's the best we've seen so far, and it removed just about all of the risk from any hosting experience.

Overall, we were impressed with how customer-centric the company's offerings are. For example, unlike some of the hosting providers we've profiled (and deducted points from), MochaHost's published prices don't balloon once you've settled in with their service. They have a lifetime price-lock guarantee

They got other customer-centric bonuses for 24/7 support, including 24/7 toll-free callback phone support, free domain name and SSL certificates for as long as you remain a MochaHost customer, a website builder with 500 free templates (and a service that will custom-design your site if you need), a site migration service. In addition, all plans are e-commerce ready and come with free shopping cart software."
