    I'm really interested in this new Let's Encrypt proposal, which (if I read this correctly) could very well put an end to the hassle of procuring and installing and renewing SSL certs manually.

    https://letsencrypt.org/2014/11/18/announcing-lets-encrypt.html

    This is a major industry effort with big backing, and coming soon.:

    "Internet Security Research Group (“ISRG”), a California public benefit corporation, to deliver this much-needed infrastructure in Q2 2015"

    Can anyone tell me whether cPanel will start supporting this technology when it lands, and if so, whether we'll be able to start using it seamlessly right away or will it require conversion of accounts, or... ?

    Thanks.

    Did a feature request for this initiative ever get submitted?

    OK. I tried submitting a request twice and nothing happens. I just get a perpetual little cycling wheel after I click the "Continue" button.

    Christ almighty! Now it works, and when I submit a feature request I find one related: http://features.cpanel.net/response...-encrypt-automated-certificate-management-ssl

    But, when I try to vote on it I get a login pop up that asks for an email address instead of a login username which is what I am already logged in with. Nothing I try works including logging in with any of those social media buttons. I get another 404 error. What the hell?

    I've tried that. But the email I enter, which is the one I am already using here on the forum is "already in use". I suppose I could try with my gmail.com address. There is an invite code field. Is that required?
