Use Lets Encrypt to secure FTPs connections

Hi,

I usually use the ftp.site.com subdomain for the client FTP connections.
And to secure those connections I enabled FTPs. But at this point the users receive a certificate host name mismatch because the FTPs connection is being setup using the VPS Lets Encrypt cert.

It would be nice to use the Lets Encrypt certificate service also to secure the FTPs connections.

Thanks!

        Current solution is totally unusable. Everytime you connect to secured ftp of domain.com you get a warning that certificate common name does not match the domain you are connecting to. How it is supposed to work?

        This feature must have been implemented years ago.

        Hello.

        JFYI: in case of Plesk Onyx 17.5+ and Let's Encrypt 2.3+:
        FTP server is secured with the Panel certificate.
        Mail server also can be secured with the Panel certificate.
        The Panel certificate can be issued with help of the extension.

        Currently only web admin url, webmail and web server supported by the extension. We must complete support including mail server certs, ftp certs, or any service provided by plesk serving anything...
