SSL Certificates

Having had some issues with a website and a hosting company over access via HTTPS i set about configuring my boxes to run on HTTPS to see what is such a difficulty for the hosting company. In my search i came across a project which issues free SSL certificates, now the great thing about this is the certificates expire after 90 days so if a hacker has been able to sniff out the keys they won’t have access to them for long, plus you can renew at anytime. The project site is here called Let’s Encrypt it was simple to setup and quick to use. So if you host your own boxes as a hobby this is the best place to look at to secure your websites.
