Hi guys,

I know that people are still talking about native Lets Encrypt support in Webfaction but I was wondering if you're working on the ability to have subdomains covered by the same SSL Cert as well?

Not in the initial roll-out, but the ability to issue wildcard certificates is the first priority in our roadmap after releasing it.

In the initial roll-out, Let's Encrypt certificates will be issued per website. That is, if your website entry at https://my.webfaction.com/websites is configured for example.com, www.example.com and sub.example.com then one certificate will be generated covering those three.

We do not have an ETA at the moment, but when that's done we will announce it with a post at https://blog.webfaction.com/, along with updated documentation at https://docs.webfaction.com/

Let's Encrypt has been released since the end of 2015. Webfaction has made comments about working on an implementation since approx. May 2016, and since that time has not been able to provide an ETA. At this point, I don't think Webfaction wants to provide an ETA, because this isn't a priority for them. If it was a priority, it would be done. All the users on this site are professionals in some form or another. If we had a project that people were asking for, and after 2.5 years, couldn't provide an ETA for when it would be done, we would be fired. I feel this implementation is a pretty major black mark on an otherwise fantastic company, which is frustrating given that SSL is essentially becoming a requirement for web sites.
