[Lazarus] https website for Lazarus

As a test I used Letsencrypt for my own site. If successful then I 
planned to update Lazarus. My first automated certificate update went 
smooth, so Lazarus is next.

One mayor issue with Letsencrypt is that all automated update processes 
re-generate the CSR. Since our hoster supports dnsseq you don't want 
that. So I spent some time to create my own update scripts using my own 
CSR. Since these proved OK, Lazarus is next.


BTW, subdomains shouldn't be a problem
