Let's Encrypt for custom domains
Today we announce support for free and automatic SSL certificates provided by Let’s Encrypt in Fanout Cloud. To use this feature, simply edit your custom domain in the Fanout control panel and enable “Use Let’s Encrypt for SSL”. Assuming you have a proper CNAME record set up for your custom domain, a certificate will be created and installed within a few minutes.
You know how it’s hard to notice your own typos? That’s how it felt to finally implement the latest round of usability fixes for Fanout Cloud. The service has always meant to be easy to use, and for the longest time I didn’t think we needed to change anything. Despite the fact that we’d sometimes receive feedback to the contrary, or that we’d sometimes observe confusion (judging by the number of incomplete accounts), I insisted that the service was as easy to use as it possibly could be. If there was any difficulty, it was of the necessary kind.
