How to Install a Free SSL Certificate using Let's Encrypt

Installing a free SSL certificate using Let’s Encrypt is a straightforward process that can be completed in just a few steps. First, you need to ensure that you have access to your website’s server and that you have shell access or the ability to use a terminal. Then, you need to install the Let’s Encrypt client on your server, which can typically be done using a package manager or by downloading and installing the client manually.

Learning that lasts. Online courses from $14.99.

Once the client is installed, you can generate an SSL certificate by running a command that includes your domain name and the email address associated with the certificate. The Let’s Encrypt client will then communicate with the Let’s Encrypt certificate authority to generate and issue the SSL certificate.

After the SSL certificate has been issued, you can configure your web server to use the certificate to encrypt traffic. This typically involves modifying your web server’s configuration files to include the path to the SSL certificate, as well as specifying the protocol and cipher suite used for encryption.

Once the SSL certificate is installed and configured, visitors to your website will be able to access it securely using HTTPS. It’s important to note that Let’s Encrypt certificates are only valid for 90 days, so you’ll need to renew your certificate periodically to ensure that your website remains secure.

How to Install a Free SSL Certificate using Let's Encrypt

In the modern internet age, delivering web content over a secure protocol has become essential.

Since January 2017, Google attaches a warning label to any website that does not secure sensitive web page content by delivering it using HTTPS. This includes web pages that contain forms asking for usernames, passwords, credit cards and other sensitive information.

In the near future Google plans to roll out a requirement for all web pages to be secured. Warning labels will become progressively more aggressive, and eventually highlighted in red, bold colors on the address bar.

It is easy to see the consequences of not complying with this new requirement. You invest time, money and energy to drive traffic to your website. Your users expect a secure browsing experience and will likely be deterred from using your page when they see such warning labels attached.

There is a common misconception that securing a webpage over HTTPS requires expert server knowledge and is a costly and cumbersome process.

The purpose of this course is designed to teach you everything you need to know about HTTPS and SSL certificates. We start with the basics. Exploring the theory and definitions that will be useful in developing your understanding.

From there, we dive into configuring a server on Digital Ocean and installing a free SSL certificate known as Let’s Encrypt. We also explore setting up Cron Jobs on an Ubuntu server, to automatically renew your certificate periodically.

After completing this course, you will easily be able to secure any web page using HTTPS and free SSL certificates.
