You can add Let’s Encrypt to your domain in the Account Control Center (ACC) interface.

Let's Encrypt does not work with domains that are using Weebly IP hosting.

Adding Let’s Encrypt to a Domain  

  1. Log in to the ACC
  2. In the left sidebar, click Manage SSL
  3. In the drop-down, click Manage Your SSL
  4. Find your domain name in the list of domains and click its Let’s Encrypt buttonunlocked image
  5. Click Enable Let’s Encrypt

This will request a Let’s Encrypt certificate for the domain. Once a certificate is requested, the message, “Let's Encrypt: Certificate Requested” will appear over the Let’s Encrypt button. You may navigate away from this page. The process will proceed whether you are on the page or not.certificate request image

Once the request has been processed, Let’s Encrypt will try to install on your domain. This may take several tries. When this step is reached, the message above the Let’s Encrypt button will change to, “Let’s Encrypt: Certificate Pending (number of tries)”.  The “number of tries” will be replaced with the number of times Let’s Encrypt has tried to install on your domain.pending image

After ten unsuccessful attempts, the process will stop. You can restart the process by disabling and re-enabling Let’s Encrypt on the domain.

Once the Let’s Encrypt certificate has been successfully installed, the message will disappear and instead show you that Let’s Encrypt is installed on your domain and that it is set to renew automatically.let's encrypt image

You can disable Let’s Encrypt at any time.
