Finally! It took a while, but as of midsummer Binero now offers SSL-certificates from Let’s Encrypt. And it’s really smooth installing them as well, at least on WordPress which is the only kind I’ve tested so far.
Since there is a drawback, ignoring the fact that the service is in beta-mode, (something which for example shows up when you try to access all help- or info-links, where all info is not yet in place), there is currently a limitation on 2 certificates per account.
Well, it doesn’t say so anywhere, but I could only register two certificates for my account, and as a consequence since I’m running two main sites and two subdomains, two of these are still missing certificates. And the webmail is also (still) missing a certificate.
All in all I believe I would need 6 certificates to cover all current needs. Or a (two) wildcard certificates. Or I’d need to redesign some of the subdomains into being integrated subfolders in the main site. Something I don’t really want.
But Let’s Encypt is free, so why not just order the additional certificates. Well, first of all Binero charges a small administrative fee for these. Not so expensive but I think I’ll manage without for the time being, (at least during beta). And secondarily, the link to order additional certificates doesn’t work yet… Another beta-flaw I suspect.
But still, it’s a giant step forward. And just in the nick of time, since most web browsers are about to start flagging http-sites as unsecure, beginning now in July, and going a step further after summer vacations, in September.
And I’ve yet to find out how to force https-redirections through .htaccess. My initial attempts haven’t worked, even though as per WordPress recommendations.
But despite some minor glitches, so far this is a huge success!
