  1. This video is no longer valid. the website has now changed and you need to logo in. The whole process is different. Click on the weblink before watching this video.

  2. I am getting 404 not found after placing the files into webroot/.well-known/acme-challenge/
    It's weird because if I change the files to .txt format then add the .txt in the browser url, it can access the files. Otherwise without the extension I cannot access the files through browser url.

  3. You need to edit the .htaccess file to automatically redirect to https instead of having to type it in manually

  4. ZeroSSL is different than LetsEncrypt. According to GoDaddy is not on list of Web Hosting Providers with Let’s Encrypt Support
