we probably already know the answer to this one BUT let's go

will Let's Encrypt give you a cert for a raw ipv6 address instead of a domain name

@diodelass no, and you need to be the registrar of the IP address to get a certificate

@diodelass the main reason is they can't verify whether the IP will change

@diodelass I figure that you have a good reason for wanting this but curiously, what were you going to do with this?

@lightdark we kinda have no idea
were trying to test to see if our webserver was up before the WAN link came back after a power outage and were getting cert errors for using the IP address
