Welcome to HTTPS era with Let’s Encrypt!

Dec 11, 2016 1 min Mike Kowalski

As you can already see in the browser’s address bar, my blog (along with other sites on mkowalski.net domain) received HTTPS support. Thanks to Let’s Encrypt everyone can get valid HTTPS certificate for free! Interested? Check out their’s Getting Started Guide. If you are lucky enough your hosting provider may already support Let’s Encrypt automatically. In my case a manual configuration was required. Luckily, it have been documented well by MyDevil team, so the process took me just a few minutes.

PS. There is still some time for those who do not have HTTPS to enter the 2017 with nice green lock icon on top!
