I use Let's Encrypt on my hosted sites, which run on shared Windows hosts under Plesk. No problems with the certificate per se, but Plesk's renewal process is a pain. It seems to involve installing files on a specific sub-folder and verifying those files by making a non-encrypted http request. This is a pain as the sites are configured to auto-redirect any insecure requests to the https: protocol, so these verification requests fail (as they don't accept a redirect as a valid response). To complicate matters further, many of my sites require authentication on all pages (apart from the login form) so again the verification request fails. I can get around this by explicitly removing authentication for the relevant subfolder, but the automatic redirect to https is more of a pain and I'm finding I have to manually disable this temporarily, manually issue a renew request, then reinstate the redirect. I suspect this is more of a Plesk issue than LetsEncrypt, but it all adds to the hassle.

That said, I have some sites that now run on https that I probably wouldn't have bothered with had I had to buy SSL certs (they're hobby sites essentially).
