In the modern internet age, delivering web content over a secure protocol has become essential.
Google recently announced plans to attach 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 or credit card information.
Overtime, 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.

Thank you so much for your video
This just made it so easy, thanks!
You have to do this every 3 months, or auto renew takes care of this?
Great tutorial. It worked! Do you have a tutorial how to renew the SSL Certificate after the 90 days?
I am getting 404 when I try to pull up the default apache index page?
Great tutorial, will this work if I am hosting from home on a dedicated IP?
This is great, you rock!
How exactly do we renew?
Can I use this free SSL on a godaddy shared account? Or is it only for VPS?
Good tutorial, just used it and it works perfect! Thanks
nice job man! The best match tutorial for me cause i have godaddy hosting!
Works on bluehost!
This is great, will the ceritificate auto renew?
It worked but chrome is displaying an error message \'This page is trying to load scripts from unauthenticated source\'. This will probably hurt SEO, any ideas?
I got stuck a couple of times with the .htaccess configuration, but other than that smooth sailing!!
This was great - especially the redirect code for the htaccess at the end!
Thank you!!!! I loved this video and it helped me out perfectly.
Thank you Bro.

How do I locate the key files in Ubuntu after installation?

My site is still showing up as not secure. I will need to double check Apache .htaccess before I continue.
