Caddy Server and Home Assistant DNS Validation

One of the really great things about using the Caddy addon for home assistant has been that it provides a more secure system as it provides automatic SSL certificates and a reverse proxy and manages renewing the certificates before expiry. I had always been unhappy however that since LetsEncrypt dropped support for https certificate validation that it required port 80 to be opened and forwarded on the router in order to renew certificates.

You only need do a quick search on Google or watch your TV to be inundated with advertisements for all kinds of websites with promises that you can do-it-yourself or have a great site for next-to-nothing. Well that is true! However, as with anything there is often a temptation to go with the cheapest option. You will see websites advertised from between $400-$700, however it is important you understand what you are purchasing as these products always have limitations.
