Nothing magical at all; the webserver renews the cert automatically after about 60 days. That's how Let's Encrypt is supposed to work--you'll have an automated process to renew the certs well before they expire, with no attention needed from the admin.you are saying that after 60 days validation date will change by something magical?
What you're saying you want is how it ought to work. If it's working when you're at home (on the same network), and not when you're away, the likely problem is with either your port forwarding configuration or your ISP blocking port 80. To check for the latter, you can use https://www.whatismyip.com/port-scanner/ and select the Web package.I wanted to just type in the address bar on any browser example.us and then it will automatically redirect or put the https:// in front of my address. I also noticed I don't have a problem with this when I'm connect to the same wifi at home.
My vote would be a better router (OPNsense or pfSense are good candidates), but all you really need is something to provide local DNS that you can configure. Pi-Hole is popular, easy to use, and it can easily run in a VM on your system if you like, or you could run it on a Raspberry Pi as originally designed:I did some reading prior to asking the question and found out that my router is not compatible.
