I host my DNS at Cloudflare. When I run AutoSSL on my domain, I get no wildcard coverage, just domain and currently created subdomains (ServerAliases) are covered. Even some of the subdomains I have are missing in the cert.
Let's Encrypt uses HTTP-01 and DNS-01 challenges for validation. Only DNS-01 supports wildcards. I presume since my DNS is hosted outside of cPanel, AutoSSL has no means of using DNS-01 at my external provider, so it reverts to using the HTTP-01 challenge. Is this correct?
I'm just asking if this is as good as it gets with AutoSSL for my specific setup? I'm trying my best to accomplish things with AutoSSL before I revert to using a certbot for Let's Encrypt installation.
