Hi Richard,

we have experience with around 1/4th the vhosts on a single Server, no
Issues at all.
Reloading can take up to a minute but the Hardware isn't what I would call
recent.

The only thing that you'll have to watch out are Letsencrypt rate Limits >
https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/
#####
/etc/letsencrypt/renewal $ ls | wc -l
1647
#####
We switched to using SAN Certs whenever possible.

Around 8 years ago I managed a 8000 vHosts Webfarm with a apache. No Issues
ether.

Cheers,
Ben
