Setting up HTTPS: the quest for a solid security config
Apr 30, 2016
I bought a shared hosting plan that lasted me almost a year before I decided to get something more powerful. Today I’ll tell you what I did to get a respectable HTTPS configuration in my recently deployed cloud server.
Motivation Having a shared hosting plan is great. You log in to cPanel and you have tons of menu options, a search bar to look for settings and you can call yourself a certified system administrator from day 1… On the other side you can only have static content, a bundle of common software options and your performance will depend on the server you’re hosted in: if it has poor specs (or too many clients in it), you’d see your blog, forum or e-commerce store drag with lag beyond what any user would bare.
