When I learned about Let’s Encrypt, I immediately started to like the idea of managing it through WordPress. Rather an experimental approach, but this is what came out of it: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-encrypt

Obviously one still needs to adjust the server configuration (which cheap hosts usually don’t allow) – it would be great if a plugin could make the entire process easy enough so that we could have almost all WordPress sites have SSL, even those maintained by people who don’t care about servers and code.

Curious what you think about this.
