    Why would anyone pay for a non-EV, non-wildcard certificate now that we have Let's Encrypt?

    Also, I'd be wary of any seller still calling it "SSL" certificate in 2017. If they can't even get the name right, I wouldn't trust them to deal with security-related products.

      Not everyone is using Linux, and not everyone likes Lets encrypt certificate

        Get a StartSSL certificate for free then.

        • +1

          Hold on there. If we're bringing StartSSL into the mix, then I'd rather go with GoDaddy. StartSSL was recently acquired by a Chinese CA (WoSign) in secret, and they've since pulled heaps of dodgy crap. They (and WoSign) are literally the worst possible choice out there right now.

        • @cynix: A certificate is a certificate, no matter which CA signed it. There's nothing not to like about StartSSL's certificates. They are exactly the same as any other certificate.

          Jokes aside, I wouldn't use either Lets Encrypt or StartSSL for a semi-serious web project. Just wanted to mention that there are other free alternatives to LetsEncrypt.

        • @bio:

          The thing wrong with StartSSL certificates is that they're not a trustworthy CA. Of course the certificate itself is the same from a technical point of view, as in it can be installed just fine on any OS.

          As long as you don't need EV or wildcard, Let's Encrypt is the best choice. Why wouldn't you use it?

        • @cynix: Let's Encrypt is a nuisance to set up and to make sure that it's up and running. If I don't need EV I'm better with something like CloudFlare's Flexi SSL anyways. Just fire and forget…

        • @bio:

          It's literally a single cron job away…

          When you use Flexi SSL, the connection between your origin server and CloudFlare's edge servers are still unencrypted. Not only does it not give you any real security, it can actually be more dangerous as it gives you a false sense of security so you end up paying less attention.

        • @cynix: FYI that's not exactly true. You can still use CloudFlare's CA signed certificate and install a self-signed or CloudFlare signed certificate on your web server.

        • @bio:

          Ah, right, I forgot about self-signed.

          Does CloudFlare allow you to pin the self signed cert in their systems though? Otherwise you're still susceptible to MITM attacks between origin and edge.

      • A certificate is a certificate, no matter which CA signed it. It has nothing to do with what operating system you're using.

        There's nothing not to like about Let's Encrypt's certificates. They are exactly the same as any other certificate, they're run by more technically competent people, and their domain verification method is vastly superior to other issuers in both security and convenience aspects, and they're free. They're literally objectively better than other CAs in every possible way.
