LetsEncrypt public certificates from Mozilla Foundation are cool, but updating every 3 months can be a pain. There are several ways to automate, and the latest I discovered is to outsource this procedure: turns out there is a DNS-provider https://porkbun.com/  who do the procedure for you. Just download the brand new certificates every 3 months and insert them where they should be, without additional fuss. Sometimes it takes some conversion to insert the certificates properly. I have written a couple of articles to find the conversion commands fast: one for IDM certificates, and a paragraph on securing Nginx reverse-proxy with certificates on my other portal.

    I might transfer my domains o porkbun.com Thanks Alex for that.

    As for the certificate conversion and general management I've found a cool tool called XCA Certificate and Key Management:

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/xca/

    It's available on Mac/Linux/Windows and it really helps me managing my certs. They could add LetsEncrypt integration though.

    Cheers
