Cloud Sites support for Let's Encrypt
I'm sure this has come up before, but a present lack of Cloud Sites support for Let's Encrypt is nudging me closer to other services.
I ended up adding a Cloudways account to support some of my clients that couldn't update to the latest PHP version, and the deployment of SSL certs through their Let's Encrypt integration saved so much time for us, as well as expense. We pay around $20/site for domain verification SSL certs, and between ordering, installing, and fixing any chain / intermediate cert issues, a minimum of 30 and sometimes more than an hour getting them fully installed at Cloud Sites.
As more clients demand SSL, the soft cost of time internally is something I have to account for. I've been a Cloud Sites customer since 2003 or so, but having experienced the time savings of a fully integrated platform, I have to say it's much more tempting to just move my SSL clients over, and the more hosting I find elsewhere, the more likely I am to deploy everyone in the same place.
