I switched my site to run with Let's Encrypt but I don't like Certbot because it needs root to run, especially if it's technically not needed. I research around and I am looking for alternatives to Certbot. I want to have one run as an unprivileged user. I heard about Dehydrated but I don't have any experience with it. Anyone else used Dehydrated or anything else? How was your experience?

Never tried Dehydrated but I used Certbot and it works pretty good with Let's Encrypt.
I used Let's Encrypt for my sites but now I am moving to free Cloudflare SSL because it is easy to install and I don't worry about renewing SSL certs for my sites like using Let's Encrypt.

Why is it a problem to use root access ? And You can use certbot with sudo.

It can be many risks if I use root account to install or configure somethings on my server, if I made it failed, all my websites can be down. That's why I want to use what is more easier to install and configure. Especially it can do on a hosting panel account, and just affect to an account on my hosting.

I think you don't need to use Certbot at this time because many hosting control panels (cpanel, plesk..) have already got free SSL feature with automatically renew SSL.
