I tried to get a certificate for my website hosted for free by Awardspace.com. The http challenge wouldn’t work because they’re blocking the URLs with folders containing a dot prefix. I read that it’s a common practice. .htaccess is limited to a few basic functions and of course they don’t give access to the server configuration files.
I also can’t do the DNS challenge because of my webhost’s limited options.
Is there a way to change the challenge URL? The topics on the subject don’t give answers working for me.
I’m afraid I’ll have to continue running my website with users giving their password on a non https page.
