    Great news!

    Anyone got any news on securing subdomains with dots / sub-subdomains with Let’s Encrypt – or did I totally miss it and it is already possible?

    Definitely great news!

    Will probably make moving sites between servers easier too (something I ran into recently)

    And about Mapped Domains to those subdomains?

      Mapped domains are a WordPress thing. That’s not related to Letsencrypt. You’d just need to setup the certificate like any other domain within Letsencrypt and it’ll work just fine.

    Is there an easy way to add Let’s Encrypt to a WordPress site with a company that does not have the easy install setup for their clients? I’m using Domains Priced Right and they don’t have it so I can just do quick install. Is it something that can be done with FTP?

      No.

      If you’re Hosting provider doesn’t support Let’s Encrypt (yet), you can’t get it yourself, unless you’re already managing the server in your own

    Oh Wow…bummer. Are there any future plans to make it an auto install for cases like mine where the hosting company wont support?

      As far as I can tell this is technically not possible. Getting https has to come from your hoster, as it needs changes in the server configuration.

      At least in Germany we see very good acceptance of Let’s Encrypt and https in general. I think almost all major hosters now provide free SSL through Let’s Encrypt.

      If your host doesn’t support free https certificates, then you either need to buy a certificate (either from them or from somewhere else) or switch providers. If they don’t support https certificates at all, then run, as that’s a horrendous web host.

      It is time to change the hosting company. Nowdays, it is rather simple process, and many hosting companies have Let’s Encrypt, and will help you migrate website for free.
