    Hi all,

    I'm sure everyone at cPanel is tired of people asking, anyway, we offer free SSL certificates for every site we host, and as such have been eager for LetsEncrypt support to save us a lot of money.

    I had a google for cpanel support again today to see if there was any updates and saw this letsencrypt-for-cpanel.com/ which is a lot better than any other lets encrypt hack or half-assed-attempt of a plugin for cPanel that are lying around

    Now I also saw a comment on the cPanel feature requests saying (3 weeks ago) the cPanel supported plugin should be ready in 8-12 weeks.

    So do I dive in for the 3rd party plugin and pay $30 for it - probably saving me around $100 in the next 3 months. Or will the cPanel one almost certainly be ready within 9 weeks now?

    I'd be happy to lose $70 to wait for the official plugin.

    Can someone shed some light please?

    I'm not at all tired of people asking. :) I'm actually excited that so many people are excited about it! Our plugin for Let's Encrypt is in active development now, and baring anything unforseen, it will be ready by the time cPanel & WHM version 58 hits CURRENT. Our goal for that is the end of June or beginning of July. I hope that helps!

    @cPanelBenny I know the goal was for this to be released end of June or start of July - are you guys still on track to hitting that goal?

    Really looking forward to this feature! :)

    We should still make that, based on what I've heard! I'll definitely update the feature request when I know for sure!

    They'll get there when they get there. Nagging them about it isn't going to help

    That's great, glad to hear it!


    HA, considering my last post here before my simple question was 5 years ago it's clear you have no idea what you are talking about. No nagging here, just one question. Move along kid.
