  • @Fidde thanks for everything. Like @MikePT said, I guess it's time to call it a day :)

    Thanks for keeping this up and everything!

    Although letsencrypt.org exists, wildcard certs are still quite invaluable for some use cases. I use it for my Sandstorm.io installation, so I probably would have to scrap that if they revoke my wildcard

    Let's Encrypt will start providing wildcard certificates in Jan 2018. https://letsencrypt.org/2017/07/06/wildcard-certificates-coming-jan-2018.html

    Bit of a silly question, but how much would an unlimited Alpha SSL account cost? Perhaps it's something we could club together and do as a community?

    Got a response, looks like it catched the attention of Globalsign and that's why some of their customers got an email, I suppose some providers doing this even according to the rules got the initial email if some of their customers used the certs outside of their network.

    Seems like they've indeed added information about the terms of SSL-certificates on their website now, it even got a separate icon ;) https://www.singlehop.com/legal/

    I think it's time to be done with this (I don't feel like fighting both SH and GlobalSign, SH doesn't really have a choice and have been great to me until GlobalSign started complaining to them, thanks to them for making this possible for over a year) and I plan to cancel my services with SH and shut down the service in a few days time, if you want a certificate, issue one now, just go with LE, or buy one (I know this is LET and that would never happen) :P

    Hello Fredrik -

    My apologies for the delay in reply. I have been trying to gather additional information from our legal and support staff regarding the situation. I am not a technical person, however our billing department plays a role in many client-vendor relationships and thereby, we frequently act as liaison in these custom-like scenarios. I wanted to ensure that I was giving you the correct information in this response.

    It was brought to my attention that the terms around SSLs were mistakenly left off our website in the last update we made to it earlier this year. That has been fixed and the terms for SSLs are now available on our legal page. Our resellers are free to say "unlimited free SSL certificates" to their customers, provided that those customers are actually hosted on SingleHop IP space.

    Notwithstanding the above, the terms are the result of our master deal with GlobalSign. If GlobalSign feels there is the possibility of misuse or abuse of our agreement, they contact us. We have no choice but to take action and ask the customer to stop doing so in order to preserve the GlobalSign deal for all our customers.

    At this time, we don't expect anything will happen with the SSLs already issued and you can leave them be until they expire. However, they cannot be renewed under the SingleHop-GlobalSign SSL deal. If you wish to renew those SSLs please contact us for pricing, and we will work with GlobalSign to discount it for you.

    Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. I appreciate your assistance.

    Regards,

    @Fidde Thanks for offering the certificates for the community! Really happy with mine. :)

    My certificate expires next March, so it works out, Let's Encrypt issues wildcard certificates in January already. Lets just hope they don't revoke my certificate before it expires, seems to be working for me.

    Ehh... time to issue another certificate covering everything before the service ends... D:

    When your certificate is up for renewal, I suggest Let's Encrypt or if hosted on a cPanel server, AutoSSL.

    Thanks a lot for what you done. :D

    For all the people who's going to renew their certificate a year from now. Let's Encrypt will already have wildcard certificates so it's really easy to get the same thing, just issued from a different CA.

    Maybe we could do some restrictions next time, such as veteran lowendtalkers only?

  • WSSWSS Member

    It's unlikely to happen again. With LE taking over, and soon to offer wildcards, well- that's pretty much where it'll go for people too cheap to pay for a cert.

    If you are talking about subaccounts from my account, they are simply gone, but all existing certs will most likely still work as stated by SH.

    If anyone is interested in starting a "sequel" it's as simple as signing up with SH with their Shield Plus service and running the script from Github. Then you can modify it as you need and add protection (password or whatnot). You can ask for help, etc, but I won't actively get involved.

    How much would this run someone at the cheapest? Looks like $40/m for a Cloud VPS is the cheaptest option, how much is Shield Plus?

    how do you know it revoked? if your domain is private, can you share screenshot,

  • @sibaper said: VirtualByte said: Mine got revoked today :( (only not working on android chrome, desktop still fine) Rip wildcard, welcome acme.

    how do you know it revoked? if your domain is private, can you share screenshot,

    Well, 1) it gets listed, and 2) the checker you're using [SSLLabs] will say it. In this case, your certificate shows up as "Not Revoked." Evidently enough, it'll say the opposite when it is removed/revoked.

    Pretty sure he knows how to check for that, and the question was why @VirtualByte thinks their got revoked. "Doesn't work on Android" is not enough, or at least what is the error message.
    Maybe it's simply misconfigured (incomplete chain) and never worked on Android in the first place.

  • Sslabs says it isn't revoked, so might be a weird android BSD SSL server issue. Weird

    If you choose to have the VPS billed hourly and have it powered off, it's cheaper. I payed about $3-7/month for the VPS and then $30/month for Shield Plus.

  • Fidde said: $30/month for Shield Plus.

    Is Shield Plus what allows SSL certs, or does it just allow an unlimited amount?

    @HackedServer said:

    As I understand, it's what makes them free. Otherwise, you probably have to pay for certs, but I'm not sure. I'd suggest chatting with them to find out :)

  • sanvitsanvit Member

    @Fidde Hey, does SH SSL support multi-domain SSL or just single domain + wildcard? And does it support certs valid for more than an year? Thanks!

    according the "Rate Turned Off $0.0103/hr", it seems at least $7/month if you select always turned off?
