Let’s encrypt SSL certificates at cPanel automatically and without native support (for example at Namecheap)

Maybe you are already aware that StartSSL free certificates are no longer an option after Google and Mozilla decided to distrust StartCom, and only certificates issued before October 21st will be valid, while any others issued after that date will provoke alerts at Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and potentially any other software.

Fortunately, we have Let’s Encrypt free certificates, if you are able to automate renewals (as the certificates expire after just three months).

Usually, this is not a problem if you control your systems. There are a lot of different solutions to automate renewals and installation, using python, bash and a lot of other different languages, and with good integration with several different services such as Apache HTTP or nginx.

Automating the Tibco Spotfire Webplayer installer

But some other components can be tricky, specially those running on Microsoft Windows.
