Using SSL for my blog now

31 January 2014

Today I decided to fix the annoying situation that my blog here wasn’t running on SSL. To be honest, I was too lazy to fix my apache configuration after setting up Ghost initially. Anyway, right now you should be browsing this website via https, which encrypts all communication going from your browser to the server.

The browser will most likely show a red marker next to the lock that indicates an encrypted connection. That’s because I’m reusing the certificate from www.kopis.de for blog.kopis.de. I’m new to this SSL certificate thing, so before I create another certificate which includes my subdomains, I have to read up on the pros and cons of certificates - and maybe I’ll end up with a self signed certificate anyway… we’ll see.
