Lifeboat automates the retrieval, installation, and renewal of SSL certificates. With no cost for the developer, certificates are issued by the Let's Encrypt project. Lifeboat schedules regular renewals of all certificates on the server.
Take the headaches out of securing your web app, Lifeboat makes configuration simple popup menu selections.

Lifeboat is a must have for Xojo Web developers. It really works like magic for deployment but in case you manage to get stuck support is amazing.
You have a superlative product and I want to thank you for that. I'm very very very happy.
Lifeboat is brain dead simple to use. It does an amazing amount of server work for you. The few minor issues we've had, Strawberry Software has fixed/upgraded in short order. Highly recommended.
