Using HTTPS By Default

Let's EncryptIt always bothered me that we did not offer this site in a secure fashion, especially since we use accounts. Starting from yesterday, all HTTP connections default to HTTPS using TLS (SSL is not safe anymore and has been deprecated). I’ve used Let’s Encrypt to generate certificates and I’m impressed with how easy this works, compared to the usual hassle. It is just a matter of downloading the client, running a few commands to generate the certificates, and then installing them to Nginx or whichever web server you may be using. The certificates can even be automatically updated by running a cron job. Highly recommended!
