How to get free Let's Encrypt SSL for your website

I think you can use a TLD and enable cloudflare ssl. (I actually have no way to get free ssl for subdomains)

Of course you can use a TLD!
Subdomains aren’t allowed, only TLD or gccTLD or any other primary domains.

You can have SSL for subdomains if you’ll use cloudflare manually, not via integration panel.

we use a free domain by Freenom with .ga TLD.
there is a difference b/w Domain, Subdomain and Top Level Domain.

@Ranakhas yes it’s won’t work for subdomains provided by hosting.
