I personally prefers Comodo's free equivalent but Let's Encrypt should "perform" just as well. Just that I prefer Comodo's over them as I believe people understands them better over Let's Encrypt so it probably slightly easier to sell with it.

Let's Encrypt is the most popular option for free SSL certificates.

No issues with Let's Encrypt so far.

I think they are both good options either the Comodo or the Let's Encrypt. I don't think either one has a bad or better side just depends on what you prefer.

I thought that the Comodo ssl's were the most known and common ones to use.

I'd say that Let's Encrypt are more popular now - mainly due to their links with Google. However, they both use 256 bit encryption so there isn't any difference in the way they perform.

We use a paid wildcard certificate from Comodo for our own site and services to gain some trust but we do offer Letsencrypt via cPanel to our web hosting customers

Letsencrypt is free SSL. Go for rapidSSL or comodo $5 something per year. That's good one.

It all depends what you want it for.

Personal websites and blogs then i would say a free SSL from Letsencrypt etc. will do.

A charity or community group website or a website that does not provide a sales platform then i would say a DV SSL certificate (Comodo positive, RapidSSl) will do.

An ecommerce website or a site that takes personal details then i suggest you use an OV or EV SSL certificate

Free SSL Certificates available in the industry will make your website and business look odd if your visitors and customers check what type of certificate you have. And online users do check what SSL certificates are installed on websites because they want to know how the secure website it is and it is safe to create an account on that website or to buy.

Paid Certificate issued by Certificate Authority with following three SSL Certificate validation option: DV SSL, OV SSL and EV SSL with validity period upto 2 years and warranty. While Free Certificate do not include warranty and valid for 90 days.

I see your point, however, I cannot fully agree with that. I'd argue that a vast majority of customers online don't even know how to tell if a website runs a secure connection.

Those that are more aware probably care for as long as their transactions are conducted via a secure connection.

Those that check what type of SSL the site runs must be in the singles digits per like 5000 people or more.

PS: Didn't know you can tell whether the SSL certificate you are running is free or not.
