This is a list of shared hosting companies that support Let’s Encrypt
Providing ‘quality-crafted hosting‘ services — SiteGround has often been considered as a front runner of feature rich hosting. Naturally, they were quick to jump on the free SSL ride and have supported Let’s Encrypt right from phase beta.
An old host with a massive user base, they excel in handling scale. As vice president Brett Dunst put it, they took a massive — “hit on the chin in lost certificate sales” by becoming the first major hosting company to support Let’s Encrypt.
Hawkhost came in slightly later to the scene to offer free SSL and increased it’s image as a low-cost and solid shared host.
My Current Websites is currently using One of These Hosting Service and they work good !
My Australian web company (https://www.webinabox.net.au) now install LetsEncrypt certificates by default for all customers-- and it’s in full production.
I’ve just moved to a new webhost 20i for my reseller services and they support LetsEncrypt (it’s one of the main reasons I’ve moved their service).
Their web address is https://www.20i.com/.
It’s done per domain from within the Control Panel if activate on the account.
At FastComet we fully supported Let’s Encrypt Free SSL certificates since early 2016. As a FastComet user you are able to generate and enable Let’s Encrypt certificates directly within your cPanel control panel without filling out any information details with a click of a button. You can have multiple certificates installed on your account for each domain and subdomain you want. The Let’s Encrypt certificate has a 90-day time span but it will automatically re-new itself unless you choose to cancel it through the cPanel interface.
Webspace-Verkauf.de (https://www.webspace-verkauf.de) is a webhosting company from Germany and we support Let’s Encrypt (Plesk Addon) in all of our Shared Hosting and Server Products. Please add us to your list “Web Hosting who support Lets Encrypt”.

In regards to Namecheap hosting supporting letsencrypt. I contacted support today and received this reply,
Yes, Let’s Encrypt is not supported on our [Namecheap] Shared and Reseller servers, as it requires Root access to the server, which is not provided with these hosting plans. It is possible to use Let’s Encrypt certificates only on our VPS and Dedicated servers.
I don’t have any “big” sites there as it’s very limited hosting, but also have been watching this list over the past months and wanted to add what I learned.
Thanks for sharing that, @mikewiesman. I don’t know if this is the case for Namecheap, but in some cases this distinction is slightly misleading if the hosting provider allows you to import an externally-obtained certificate on shared hosting (e.g., to upload your certificate and private key), because people can obtain Let’s Encrypt certificates on their own laptops and then upload them to the shared hosting provider. An important disadvantage of that is no automated renewal.
I wouldn’t mind manually updating the cert and ket manually for one site…or even maybe five. But this process would get a little time intensive when managing 100s of sites.
Any ideas on next steps I could take?
Further explained by the support staff,
Namecheap is dedicated to data security and privacy for all internet users. We believe the movement to encrypt nearly all web traffic is a positive direction. As more sites embrace HTTPS and use of security products, providers of free SSL are beginning to come online. Though we believe increased web security is a good thing, we also think that using certificates from free providers can get more risk and uncertainty into your business.
The key distinction is that free SSL certificates provide encryption (i.e., scrambling of data during transmission to prevent tampering) only. Encryption is important, of course, but to get the crucial component of validation, you need a purchased SSL certificate. Validation refers to the security checks the Certificate Authority performs on your business before issuing a certificate. Validation assures users that certificate owners are who they say they are, building customers’ trust in your business. Also, free SSL providers offer no integration assistance or other customer support.
That is a blatant lie: Of course, Let’s Encrypt performs validation; as required for DV (domain validated) certificates.
