Hi, I’m just a regular person with a wordpress site on shared hosting who wants to secure his website with SSL. I’m passionate about free software but have very little technical knowledge beyond basic shell commands in debian. I phoned my UK based webhost to ask about letsencrypt and after a bit of confusion , one of their sysadmins came back and said that there was no way they could support this on their cloud platform or on cpanel sites as the root permissions required were too great and presented a security risk to their infrastructure.
So a few questions:
Is there anyway anyone here can convince them that it is OK? i.e respond to this so I can email them the link.
If not, can anyone recommend a UK based shared hosting company using linux that will allow letsencrypt client installation? so that I can migrate if need be.
Thanks in advance.
