Finally, I’ve done it! Thanks to Let’s Encrypt (a non-profit organization providing free SSL/TLS certificates signed and validated by a CA) and Certbot on my Linux-based web server, I have successfully implemented SSL for www.127ishome.com on this website. I will eventually add a wildcard cert, as soon as I can figure out how to get Cloudflare to work with that. Additionally, for now, I’m going to be running on the Cloudflare Universal SSL certificate until I can figure out how to get end-to-end communication using my Let’s Encrypt certificate…let’s be honest, it’s probably better that we’re using Cloudflare’s Universal SSL certificate.
Please note that for the next few days/weeks, some of the links on this website may either be a.) broken and/or b.) redirect to a non-secure version of the website while I change those links over to HTTPS-compatible links.
Please note that HTTP support is still enabled for purposes of compatibility. If your browser doesn’t support HTTPS, just remove the “s” in the “https://” that precedes the links in your address bar for this website. But let’s be honest – if your browser doesn’t support HTTPS, what are you using? A 1998 edition of Netscape Navigator?
Anyhow, thanks y’all! Enjoy your extra security while reading about…whatever the hell I do.
