Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open Certificate Authority. It’s goal is to get all web pages on the internet, encrypted (using HTTPS/SSL). When web pages are sent via HTTPS, the contents cannot be modified in transit, ensuring that the receiver of the content receives the intended information. There are also other benefits of using HTTPS which you can read about here.
I have written a tutorial on how to get your site set up and using HTTPS/SSL on my wiki site, which you can find here.
The reason I have posted the tutorial on the wiki instead of directly here is to allow quicker navigation between tutorial headings. WordPress does not allow this in it’s design but the wiki platform does.
