My host, Dreamhost, is offering free web site certificates through Let’s Encrypt, a new initative to make encrypted connections the default standard through the internet. They started with free SSL certificates.
So I turned it on.
Most browsers will be warning against unecrypted web sites real soon now, so I thought it best to do this now.
The only change I seem to need was to change the Google Fonts URLs to
https as well.
Note: Since the Let’s Encrypt root certificates have not yet been deployed to all browsers (especially older ones), you may get a browser message that this site cannot be trusted or verified. Hang in there, and let me know via the comments (with screenshot and date).
