sslmate


[link to this post]
 
What with all the snooping going on today, I wanted to make my home server an https only site.

Googling, it appears a bit of a nightmare and expensive to get certs for a domain - and so complicated.

But anyway, I finally found a post about this site:

https://sslmate.com/

Heh. Create an acount, install sslmate, run it, buy your certs (only about £10.00 for a year!), install them, re-config apache and off you go - all in about 5 minutes.

You can then test your server here:

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/

All good stuff.

Let's Encrypt is another (free) option
