Certbot and Cloudflare DNS Plugin

I learnt today that I can run Certbot to create and renew Let’s Encrypt SSL/TLS for domains/web sites not hosted on the same machine – a fact I didn’t know before today.

Also, because Certbot can be used to manage Let’s Encrypt certificates for domain names hosted elsewhere, there is no requirement for the system running Certbot to have a web server like Apache/httpd running (for domain verification purposes).
