    If you haven’t heard of letsencrypt.org they are “Let’s Encrypt is a new Certificate Authority: It’s free, automated, and open”

    Basically they will issue ssl certs for web sites free and in milliseconds, and here’s how.

    1. Get hold of the letsencrypt program

    git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt
    cd letsencrypt
    ./letsencrypt-auto --help

    Then for me it was just a question of running

    ./letsencrypt-auto --apache -d depicus.com -d www.depicus.com

    And within seconds we are https – cool as <3
