Automate DigiCert SSL with ACME API
Let's Encrypt is a fantastic system. It has changed the landscape of SSL certs to the point that DigiCert now offers an ACME API endpoint1. This is currently a beta feature, but this would be invaluable to hosts and webmasters.
Consider a world where the only major concern is, is there active funding for the cert? The rest will be handled by the ACME bot of choice. This removes the possibility of the cert not being added or unavailable to browsers.
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

Even w/o popularity this should be considered as the life span of SSL certs drops down to 398 days ( one year plus grace period) - Safari/Apple will roll this change out on September 1, 2020 -, this will become a pain point that you can get ahead of.
