There was a time when pretty much the only websites that operated under an SSL certificate - that's a security certificate that assures your computer is communicating with a web page over an encrypted connection - were sites that collected personal payment information or other sensitive data.

Recently, however, there has been a real push to get more and more websites using SSL certificates, with some of the major browsers like Chrome and Firefox actually going out of their way to flag sites that aren't using them. That's good news because it's going to cut down on fraud and spoofing of sites. But it's bad news if your site isn't operating under an SSL certificate already.

In this tutorial I'm going to show you how you can join the SSL secured crowd and get a free SSL certificate and easily set it up for your website to use. Now the ssl certificate that we're going to get for free is through the certificate authority "Let's Encrypt" and that’s who Cybersalt Hosting is set up to issue free certificates through.
