yeah, thatd be cool. but until then, theres startssl.com free certificates, which dont cause browser warns like the selfsilgned ones do. its kind of a pain, as you have to validate your email, and domain, then request the cert, then manually install it… but… free.
Just wanted to say that I am glad DH is working on integrating Let’s Encrypt. I have a certificate for my top level domain, but I need it for subdomains as well, and I don’t want to have to pay for a cert for every subdomain.
Now that Let’s Encrypt has started to invite people to join the beta roll-out, this would be especially nice. Will you send out an email when support is available? Or provide a page in the panel for us to sign up to be notified?
I have shared hosting, with shell access. But manually running the Let’s Encrypt script to get a certificate is tricky, because it assumes it will run as root, and tries to install dependencies, when I don’t have root. So I haven’t gotten that to work.
I’m assuming that whatever DreamHost comes up with will work for shared hosting as well, and not require root.
