“All websites hosted with Hetzner will automatically have Let’s Encrypt SSL installed as part of the hosting package,” said Hetzner.

Certificate renewals will also be taken care of.
Good stuff.

Piss poor considering that Cpanel has an official plugin for LetsEncrypt... Setup takes 1min at the most.
Probably worried that it would cannibalize their paid SSL certificate options

How many local webhosting companies have adopted the initiative? It is an extremely healthy milestone in the internet landscape at the moment. Good on Hetzner, but I must say that every hosting company that I work with outside SA has already adopted. Not every company have it automatically enabled, but you may ask them to implement LE.

LE is SUPER easy to implement on a hosting server, I don't know why other hosting companies aren't offering this as part of their packages. There are even apps like certbot that do auto-renewal for you so you don't have to script it...
