    Great to see you guys adapting letsencrypt! Thumbs up!

    Can you please expand the certificate to also include the www.gbatemp.net subdomain, so that those who were visiting with the (rather pointless) www, won't get a certificate issue?

    Thanks!

    Why did you only get a certificate valid for 3 months?

    Should probably redirect www to non-www instead? @Costello

    This is simply how Letsencrypt works.
    It issues certificates valid for 90 days so that people would renew it more often.
    It's a free authority, so you can renew as much as you want.

    that's what it's supposed to do, but the redirection only works after the HTTPS certificate validation :)
