Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

In today's world, browsers will not even show your website if there is no SLL. Therefore, forwarding without SSL is meaningless.
yeah, we need this feature also!
A must! Please implement asap, several customers affected at the moment.

We register domains for our clients which should redirect to existing domains on other servers. The registered domains point to our plesk server, but if we set them up as "domain redirect" instead of hosting, we can't enable Let's Encrypt for these domains. As a workaround we have to enable hosting for the domain, add a Let's Encrypt cert and create a .htaccess file with the 301 redirect.
So we request the feature to enable Let's Encrypt certs for redirect domains.

Yep, this is definitely required. Browsers remember if they've accesses a domain via https and will try that first. If the domain has changed from a normal web site to a redirect the user will end up on a page that displays a cert warning and is not redirected correctly. I would argue that the redirect functionality is broken as the user doesn't get redirected.

Not just frame forward, but also standard HTTP Redirect forward, this will be more important when the web moves to "HTTPS by default" as then a redirect would fail with an SSL Error.
Additionally please make the Let's Encrypt extensions also support these.

SSL certs are available for Aliases, it makes no sense they are not for forwardings.
