Let's Encrypt SSL certificate with every peaknetworks hosting for free
Since mid-2018, peaknetworks hosting customers can activate free Let's Encrypt SSL certificates on their hostings or subdomains at peaknetworks. The only requirement is that the DNS servers of the domain are at peaknetworks, as the validation of the Let's Encrypt SSL certificate is done via an additional DNS entry.
As long as the domain is with us, we ensure an automatic and uninterrupted renewal of the Let's Encrypt SSL certificates on your website.
Frequently asked questions about the SSL certificate
Can I use an SSL certificate with an external domain?
Yes, we also offer free Let's Encrypt certificates for external domains. To do this, simply store the following DNS record with your current provider:
_acme-challenge CNAME _acme-challenge.internet-servers.net..
As soon as this has been done, you can simply send us an email, or post a message via our support forum.
How long is an SSL certificate valid?
The free Let's Encrypt certificate is only valid for 3 months. However, this is renewed automatically by ours.
Paid certificates have a term of one year. If not canceled, this is also renewed automatically.
Can I download the SSL certificate?
Let's Encrypt certificates are very short-lived, so we do not offer a download.
Paid certificates are sent to you automatically after Renew.
