Letsencrypt and certbot are great for getting SSL certificates, however, if you’re using DNS-01 it’s not easy to automate renewals. I decided to fix that, at least for my use case with CloudFlare.
In part 1 I gave a bit of background and discussed moving the website hosting for two of my sites. In part 2 I’ll discuss domains… Thrilling stuff!</sarcasm>

In part’s 1 and 2 I went through the beginning of the process of acquiring a US-based credit card (if you haven’t read them, this post probably won’t mean much so they are a better place to start) and left you, dear reader, waiting with baited breath (Yeah yeah I know, you’d almost forgotten really)…
