    1. To enable HTTPS on your website, you need to get a certificate (a type of file) from a Certificate Authority (CA). Let’s Encrypt is a CA. In order to get a certificate for your website’s domain from Let’s Encrypt, you have to demonstrate control over the domain. With Let’s Encrypt, you do this using software that uses the ACME protocol, which typically runs on your web host. To figure out what method will work best for you, you will need to know whether you have shell access (also known as SSH access) to your web host. If you manage your website entirely through a control panel like cPanel or WordPress, there’s a good chance you don’t have shell access. You can ask your hosting provider to be sure.

    1. Until Let’s Encrypt fixes their bullshit, the CAcert certificate stays.

      As of now (2016-09-20), xaymar.com actually does use a certificate issued by Let's Encrypt. It would be very interesting to read a follow-up article about the reasons that lead to this switch. Sadly, I haven't been able to find one.
