Web Hosting who support Let's Encrypt


#247

Hi @hongducwb,

I think in this case the reason DigitalOcean isn’t mentioned is that its only product offering is a VPS. But the list notes

All Dedicated/VPS hosting supports installation. This is not a link directory page.

This is to say that VPS providers don’t have to do anything in order for Let’s Encrypt to be used with their products (customers can inherently obtain and install their own certificate on a VPS or dedicated server, and don’t need the provider’s permission or assistance).

Whereas for shared web hosting, customers do need the provider’s help or permission, and so this list focuses on distinguishing between shared web hosts that do or don’t facilitate the use of Let’s Encrypt certificates.

Just a note as it is mentioned for cpanel. For Plesk there is a plugin providing Let’s Encrypt as well: https://ext.plesk.com/packages/f6847e61-33a7-4104-8dc9-d26a0183a8dd-letsencrypt

NAMECHEAP Work Around

So I managed to get a LetsEncrypt certificate to work at NameCheap. It does require access to a shell account that you can work in separate from the NameCheap hosting.

  1. Log into your Cpanel and go to SSL/TLS
  2. Create a CSR from Cpanel
  3. Go to https://gethttpsforfree.com and enter the CSR
  4. This is where you need access to a shell account that can work with OpenSSL. Even running in a VM on your own computer will work. Follow the instructions to create an Account.Key/Public Key and Signed API requests.
  5. Use File Based/HTML Verification to verify your domains.
  6. Create the files on your computer as text Files. I used Bitvise to connect to SFTP on the server because it lets me see hidden directories. Create the hidden directory as instructed, upload the files and remove any extensions (.txt)
  7. Verify your domains, if you did everything correctly, it will read the html files and issue your certificate. If not, you have to start over.
  8. Go to CPanel back to SSL/TLS and install the certificate to the server.
  9. Install SSL to your website.

Congratulations, you have LetsEncrypt SSL on the NameCheap hosting server. Only reason why I figured this out instead of moving the site is because I just paid for a year of service and moved all my domains to them before I found LetsEncrypt. So Id like to run those out if I can before moving again.

Since the start of April 2017, XS4ALL has started to make redirecting to HTTPS the default for all browsers that support it.

This is by means of the Upgrade-Insecure-Requests technology that the vast majority of modern browsers (excluding IE/Edge) support. If the browser sends the header that it supports it, the browser is redirected to HTTPS.

The default for new customers will be a full redirect.

In the coming months we will slowly move existing customers to a full redirect, but that needs a bit more care.
