Web Hosting who support Let's Encrypt


#1

I wanted to make a list of Web Hosting providers who are in favor for supporting Let’s Encrypt. This means they have to support shared hosting too, not just the obvious vps/dedicated/cloud hosts whom already offer root access and whose customers can do it themselves. Most can be contacted via feedback@domain requesting them to add support for it including on their shared hosting if they provide it, or bug them on social networking like twitter or facebook.

There is a cpanel addon that is planned for any hosting company that is interested: https://features.cpanel.net/topic/provide-support-for-lets-encrypt-automated-certificate-management-ssl - Please vote this up since this will likely increase the awareness of letsencrypt.org.

Why make this list? To directly point out who cares about online privacy and who doesn’t.

Web Hosting Providers Let’s Encrypt Support Status

This is a community maintained list and does not guarantee implementation.

Planned:

Waiting/Delayed:

  • Hostgator Implementation of Let’s Encrypt has been relayed internally for further consideration. (Source)

Unconfirmed:

Dedicated/VPS/Cloud Hosting:

  • All Dedicated, VPS, and Cloud IaaS hosting supports Let’s Encrypt with any client. This is not a link directory page.

No Planned Support:

Notes

I will try my best to monitor this post, PM’s, and any emails sent to me regarding being added. It’s a slow process. I appreciate your understanding.

Recently, this post has become so popular that is was turned into a wiki, anyone with (10?) posts can edit it. Please help me with this list if you have time and ability to check any new links by adding them. I appreciate everyone’s help in making the web safer!

Hostinger have no plans to support LE

#6

Thank! added.

@iNathan Thanks, do you have a link by any chance of their confirmation of no plans for supporting LE?


#7

why mydevil on the not supported list? they even have a wiki entry for it on how to make it work.


#8

Rolling since day one :wink: https://www.cyon.ch/blog/Lets-Encrypt-ist-da-Kostenlose-SSL-Zertifikate-fuer-alle


#9

Don’t hosting providers run into problems with the “10 registrations per IP in 3 hours” limit?


#10

I read they didnt support it but found the wiki entry. Added them!

@zedpelin Thanks! added!

@ardijyrgens That means 80 registrations per day :wink:


#11

I don’t have a link as I sent them a support ticket regarding Let’s Encrypt.

I’ve uploaded the picture but I’ll see if I can get a more public response.


My provider doesn't want to cooperate
#12

No, hosting providers set up one account per server (== per IP) and then request all certificates with this account.


#13

We supported letsencrypt from the first hour of public beta: https://www.schokokeks.org/
(Fully automated, customers just switch on “Let’s Encrypt” for their host and all magic is done behind the scenes.)

But apart from that: I don’t like such lists. They are incomplete. And they don’t represent details such as if it’s working stable or easy to use. If your desired hoster cares about security does not simply mean if letsencrypt is supported or not. There’s more about that topic.


#14

KeyCDN just launched free SSL based on Let’s Encrypt for all their customers


#15

At Pressjitsu we rolled out full support for Let’s Encrypt at launch day, we actually had a party. We don’t use the LE client though, we have custom Python scripts that handle everything, including updating nginx configs for user nodes using our configuration templating and scheduling a certificate renewal job.

For our customers’ domains we never hit the current (or private beta) rate limiting since the requests originate from the customer node and each has a unique IP address.


#16

That’s true, but you have to do something smart when 11 users request a certificate within 3 hours. Also afaik renewals count towards rate limiting as well, so that could potentially be a problem, but hey, you can always tunnel it through a different IP…


#17

Thank you, added hosting.

That’s why people should contact support before signing up to a hosting provider to confirm everything they are looking for. This is common sense. I’ve always talked to customer care before signing up because then I will actually know what I am getting. Maybe this isn’t common?

This list will never be perfect, but it’s better than having people asking who is supported over and over and over. Should we give a star based system for ease of setup?


Extend SSL certificate
#18

novatrend.ch launched free SSL certificates based on Let’s Encrypt for all hosting customers. It’s well integrated in cpanel and customers can request and install the certificate with just one click. The certificate is automatically renewed in the background.


#19

That would be madly expensive (assuming you mean IPv4). What provider does that?


#20

@hobarrera: Did you read my message in the right context? I replied to post #9.
One Server has one (or few) IP address, registers one LE account, requesting many LE certificates with this account.

What’s the expensive part about that?!
