LetsEncrypt vs. Comodo and Geotrust

We have received many questions about LetsEncrypt and why we do not offer the service. The answer is not because we want to make extra money - the answer is due to the lack of security this type of certificate actually provides. We view this as a bad idea for our clients and their website visitors and we do not want to put any of you in jeopardy.
