SSL Certificates without hassles

Post by sanferno » 2018 Jun 27, 09:44

Hi,

As the forum seems to be on hollydays, here I come to disturb during your sunny days at the beach. :P

I maintain a simple website that serves basically as my online CV (no personal data collection, no e-commerce). Recently, I've read that Google is going to block websites without certificate so, since I don't want to be bother to much with this issue, which are your recomentations?

- Is is really important in my case?
- Should I buy one SSL Certificate?
- Is there any way to get one for free?

if you are not selling anything, I wouldn't worry about google. There is a way to get free https certs from letsencrypt (google for details) but it requires a compatible web service provider -- you need to check with your supplier.

Well, it's not compatible with my provider and getting the cheapest option would double the price of my actual hosting plan. :?
I'm going to leave things as they are for now hoping that Google won't block my website... :roll:
