This Site Is Now SSL Secured – Thank You Letsencrypt.org

From today on this site is secured and certified via SSL. In the past it was difficult to get a certificate for your website that is accepted by your browser and you had to pay for it. Letsencrypt.org is a new certificate authority, free and relatively easy to set up. It took me 1 hour (including research) to get the certificate for my domain and set up the Apache2 webserver and my site.

2 hiccups I had to take care of: Enabling Apache2 SSL module and forwarding SSL port 443 in my router.

I am glad it is working now. 🙂

How do you see whether a website is SSL secured or not? If the address in the browser address bar starts with an https:// instead of an http://, you can feel on the safe side.
