Free SSL is no longer available on Godaddy

Hi there,


I tried to have Let's encryped and zero SSL but I have failed. Because it is not allowed to create .well-known file on public-html, (which is .well-known ann acme-challenge. ) Godaddy does not allow us to do that because of security reasons. Why ?? it is because free  ? Please help me solving this problem.

This is entirely dependent on server permissions.


What hosting platform are you on? (I'm going to hazard a guess and say Managed WordPress.)
