Yes, I think now it is ok as I can see. I'll let you know if I find
something. Thank you very much for your effort! :)

Hm, I think you misunderstand what does "public beta" mean for
letsencrypt. For now:
1. They are issuing valid certificates for 90 days. "Valid" means certs
are signed by reputable CA (IdenTrust?), so it passes browser check. So
if your server support SSL/TLS at all, you can have it.
2. There is console tool for cert requesting with several methods of
proving your domain ownership. All procedure takes SECONDS, then - BAM -
you have your certificates. It is not perfect though, it is lacking
automation in some sort, but it is developing so fast that I think I
might be already wrong about it :)
3. Of course it is free as in freedom to drink free beer :)

You should really go and check docs there
