Renewals and Lifetimes
Certificates from Let's Encrypt are valid for 90 days. We recommend renewing them every 60 days to provide a nice margin of error. As a beta participant, you should be prepared to manually renew your certificates at that time. As we get closer to General Availability, we hope to have automatic renewal tested and working on more platforms, but for now, please play it safe and keep track.
Let's Encrypt maintainence events are posted on https://letsencrypt.status.io/ and Twitter (@letsencrypt_ops). If you need help, both the Let's Encrypt community at https://community.letsencrypt.org/ and #letsencrypt on irc.freenode.org are excellent sources of assistance.
If there are updates for Beta program participants, they will be posted at the community site at:
