How to protect a website/droplet with HTTPS
Anyone here ever use the Lets Encrypt Digital Ocean feature? I have deployed a website on a Digital Ocean droplet that listens on port 80, i.e. vanilla HTTP. I would like to protect the website using HTTPS, and it seemed like this would be a simple process using DO’s Let’s Encrypt integration under the Security -> Certificates section. It was as simple as…
- Click on “Add Certificate”
- Select the domain name of my website… testingtestingmiccheck123.com
- Click on “Generate Certificate”
However, after doing this simple process, my website is still being served over HTTP. Am I doing something wrong here? Is this not actually what this feature of DO was intended to be used for?
