    I’m helping someone with their site at but they aren’t that familiar with how SSL certs work.
    They have your wildcard installed for but they need to get one for Will this be done automatically with Let’s encrypt or do they need to buy one separately and install?


    Has been upgraded to a paid plan to enable you to correctly map the other domain to that site? Then the other domain could be set as the primary domain and would display in browsers (with a padlock).


    That doesn’t address the SSL cert issue. uses the wordpress wildcard cert like all the sites.

    For the other domain there must be a new cert installed, else browsers will give a warning. My question is how allows that. Does provide it, or does the customer create a CSR and get it signed?



    Hi there,

    We automatically enable SSL for all sites hosted on Whether you use the free address or a custom domain makes no difference – if you add a custom domain to your site we automatically issue a SSL cert for that domain as well.
