Hey Ash,

I‘ve tried with my mobile now. I can confirm that everything is working fine.

Solution: Seems that your configuration blocks incoming traffic from my openVPN IP.


Have a nice day

Altervista.org supports it, just by throwing an https switch in their panel to on (default off). But i’ve been unable to find any announcements.

Hello, @stevenzhu

We are already on the list as Hoop.la:
Hoop.la (Source )

However, we have changed the name of our product to Crowdstack. We also automatically enable Let’s Encrypt and Redirect HTTP->HTTPS by default for any new customer sites.

Can we get our product name updated on the list and moved up to the “Providers that Automatically Enable Let’s Encrypt and Redirect HTTP->HTTPS by Default” section?

@wpprovider Can you please share me your pricing pages? I can’t find that from your website (or sign-up links)
@SocialStrata_Inc Added.

Also removed 1 host from list based on report



A minor announcement/pending change:

I plan to change this list a bit (giving it a modern look with tables)
The reason behind this is that most companies are using cPanel/Plesk intergration, and some other people are using custom solutions. I would like to distinguishes different implementations and provide instructions accordingly.

New Format in progress:
A new format for this list is currently in progress, view it in the gist below: https://gist.github.com/stevenzhu25/b0dbe75e9d87d826a34c672a28e80c24

What do you think?


Yes sure. Normally clients come to us for a benchmark. Within their account they are able to select a package. They can fully customize it. Here some packages: https://wpprovider.nl/tarieven-wpprovider/

If you have any question please let me know.

Thanks for moving to the top section.

I mentioned that we updated the name of our product but I failed to provide you with the updated links.

Would you please update our entry from:

Hoop.la (Source )


Crowdstack (Source )

The old links do redirect to the new locations but we would rather they just point to the correct place to begin with. Oh, and we are using a custom implementation.



@SocialStrata_Inc I’ve changed the name and links, sorry about that.
@wpprovider Added.



German provider maxcluster has partial support as well (see https://maxcluster.de/blog/2018/01/lets-encrypt-ssl-zertifikate-kostenlos-sicher-und-schnell-einrichten and https://github.com/certbot/website/pull/543#event-3101940668 )
