A simple ACMEv2 client for Windows (for use with Let's Encrypt et al.)


Use an acme-dns server to handle the validation records. The plugin will ask you to choose an endpoint to use. For testing the endpoint is useful, but it is a security concern. As the readme of that project clearly states:

“You are encouraged to run your own acme-dns instance.”

It’s possible to use basic authentication for your acme-dns service by specifying a url with the format


Not supported, unless there is a pre-existing acme-dns registration for all the domains. The reason for this is that acme-dns requires you to create CNAME records. In the future this might be scripted the same way we can script DNS validation itself, but so far there hasn’t been enough demand for that feature to make it worth developing.
