Last week MaxXor suggested that I should add HTTPS support to my blog. My existing free host (bplaced) doesn’t offer HTTPS, so I decided to finally switch to paid hosting. After thinking a bit, reading customer references, I chose Active24 – and so far the experience has been overwhelmingly positive.
- Webhost was set up within minutes, including self-signed HTTPS certificate;
- As soon as you update your DNS entries, Let’s Encrypt certificate is issued automatically. You don’t need to do anything yourself!
- Unlimited disk space;
- Unlimited traffic;
- Unlimited cron jobs;
- And everything “just works™”;
For now HTTPS is optional (try https://lifeinhex.com/), I’ll start enforcing HTTPS in a few days after fixing all the mixed-content warnings. smile
Have fun and stay safe (and let me know if you notice any issues)!
