Thanks to the Lets Encrypt project’s enticing SSL certificate price ($0.00!), I’ve been able to switch K12TechSystems.com over to all HTTPS, all the time!
As a side benefit, Chrome will soon begin marking non-HTTPS sites with the red “X” untrusted logo. Providers have had plenty of time to make adjustments as they first hinted of the change back in 2014. It still doesn’t appear that they have announced a date for this change yet, but it’s always better to be on the front side of a transition like this.
If you’re looking for a project to try out LetsEncrypt on, there are tons of great articles/help available for your various projects!
