DNSMadeEasy Plugin not found in Repo

Debian 10

I am trying to install certbot-dns-dnsmadeeasy via 'apt install certbot-dns-dnsmadeeasy", however it is not listed at all. I can see certbot-dns-route53, google, linode, and etc, but nothing for DNSMadeEasy.

What gives?

The Debian maintainer didn’t package it - https://salsa.debian.org/letsencrypt-team/certbot . There might be a reason, like a tricky dependency, but otherwise, the OS packages are done on a volunteer basis so it’s hard to ask a lot from them. There’s a lot of progress being made to package Certbot as a snap though, which should provide first-party packaging of all the DNS plugins on all distros.

For now, you could consider using something like acme.sh (https://github.com/acmesh-official/acme.sh/wiki/dnsapi#9-use-dnsmadeeasy-domain-api), lego, posh-acme, etc, or the Certbot Docker images if you want to stick with Certbot.

Sounds like this should be a feature request somewhere.

The are many DNS providers that don’t have plugins ported for Certbot. And there are many providers that don’t provide an API so their clients can have control of their domain properties.

There are other ways to obtain Lets Encrypt Certificates other than DNS auth.
@_az has discussed this before DNS providers who easily integrate with Let’s Encrypt DNS validation

It would be worth the time to take a look at it.

Hope this helps

FWIW, if it was packaged, the apt package would probably be called python3-certbot-dns-dnsmadeeasy.
