Ever since Google announced in 2017 that they would be prioritizing sites with HTTPS for SEO, I knew I had to make sure this blog had the necessary setup. I initially procrastinated a bit because I thought I was going to have to do some research to find the latest and greatest in terms of trusted certificate authorities. Once I decided to put this in place my research wasn’t long at all.
Enter Let’s Encrypt, a
free, automated, and open certificate authority… provided by the ISRG.
Well that gives me peace of mind. Further investigation then pointed me to
free, open source software tool for automatically using Let’s Encrypt certificates on manually-administrated websites to enable HTTPS.
Nice 😌, that’s perfect.
