In 2015 web developers understand more about SSL than they ever have. If you read Hacker News you should know:
- You can get domain validated (DV) certs from Let’s Encrypt for free.
- You can get extended validation (EV) certs from CertSimple with checks before you pay. That’s us by the way!
- The Mozilla SSL Config Generator can set up your server as secure as possible for the browsers you want to support.
- When you’re done, use SSL Labs to check everything. Make sure you get an A, otherwise people will pick on you.
What about the rest?
