Let's Encrypt renewal / overlap? re: Google Chrome HTTPS push


#1

I received a note from Google this morning advocating for sitewide HTTPS and warning about the Chrome update coming in October that will identify every HTTP site as untrustworthy.

We are behind the times on this and enabled Let’s Encrypt immediately. (Thanks for the easy option!) But given that the certificate expires every 90 days, I am wondering if DreamHost renews this automatically and if the new certificate is requested and activated before expiration or if there will be a self-signed stand-in every 90 days while this process takes place.

We fully automate the renewal process of Let’s Encrypt certificates. Just check the box to enable it and you’re all set!

That’s wonderful - thanks for confirming!
