Let’s Encrypt SSL Certs on Namecheap

I’ve been very happy with my move to Namecheap for hosting. The only downside so far has been their SSL certs. They don’t support Let’s Encrypt in their cpanel and instead make you pay for certs. The first year, however, is free! Well, it’s been about a year and I started to get emails about renewals. Reasonable prices, but would have added up to a lot for the number of websites I have on their service.

I went looking around for a way to do certs via let’s encrypt and finally found this guide that uses Acme to add/handle certs:

Simple guide to add TLS cert to cpanel

If all goes well about once a day it’ll check to see if I need a new cert and handle it for me.
