Support for HTTPS?

Post by Tdarcos » Fri Jan 20, 2017 9:44 pm

There is a website called Lets Encrypt https://letsencrypt.org/getting-started/ which is giving away free SSL certificates. If you have SSH access to your website, or your hosting provider will support Lets Encrypt then it's supposed to be easy.

As soon as I can figure out how to set this up I'm going to put it up on my domains, and because I think we should encourage everyone we can to use security I want to recommend to anyone who operates a website on their own domain to take advantage of this and enable secured http.
