Using the webroot domain verification method

I actually outlined webroot authentication at Letsencrypt Webroot Authentication Tested on Beta invited/whitelisted domain

As to why use webroot, I mentioned my thoughts here Preventing Letsencrypt 3rd party clients going the Android way? - #3 by kelunik

unfortunately webroot authentication does require SSH access to run so not suited for shared hosting

My vision for webroot authentication is to make it easier for control panels, or folks who know their web server/OS environments best to pre-create their https vhost configurations prior to running webroot authentication.
