Let’s Encrypt is in Beta

It appears that Let’s Encrypt has started its closed beta as of 29th October 2015. I’ve managed to get in on it, and Ubermotive is running on a brand new SSL certificate signed by the Let’s Encrypt CA. I’ve gone through the site and replaced most HTTP links with HTTPS ones and also forced HTTPS site-wide (you’ll get a redirect if you attempt to enter by HTTP). So far, so good.

With the Australian Government deciding that our ISPs should track more that what a user should be comfortable with, I recommend doing this on your website, regardless of what you’re hosting. The smaller the the user footprint, the better.
