Your url is wrong. Btw, why are used to put url's between quotes ?

Must be: http://www.startssl.com/

Using already for years a class 2 one.

I've been using them for more than 5 years, and yes the free was was there back then. It however took a few years to get IE and Opera (being the last) to accept them.

Hidden in the Bulletproof TLS Newsletter 48
https://www.feistyduck.com/bulletproof-tls-newsletter/issue_48_google_starts_cecpq2, there is a new Norwegian free SSL provider with the same services as Letsencrypt. Key difference: certificates are twice as long valid as those of Letsencrypt, 180 in stead of 90 days.

Looks interesting, I think I may try it out - see if it is easy to get set up and running on Apache 2.4.37.

Well, may scratch the idea as the client they recommend you use (CERTBOT) does not work on Windows.

Steffen uses mod_md.so nowadays, which is hardcoded for Letsencrypt.

Tried latest Win-Acme. It is geared more towards IIS. There is a workaround for Apache (a bit awkward).

Ran into some snags with redirects. May play with it more this weekend to see if I can get it to work.

You can try to set in httpd.conf:

I am correct, mod_md is hard-coded to only use LetsEncrypt.

In this article, although he uses certbot and acme_tiny, i noticed him mentioning a possible issue:

The Buypass ACME API endpoint isn't actually fully compliant with the spec and while other clients can tolerate that and still function, acme_tiny can't.
