What is Let’s Encrypt?

Let’s Encrypt is a certificate authority (CA) that offers free SSL certificates for encrypting communication between your web server and users. The certificates are domain-validated.

It can increase the credibility of your website effectively. Also, it can improve the site’s security and SEO ranking.
