Let’s Encrypt is one of those projects that I am a little bit hesitant to recommend. The reason is that they do an awful job of explaining what they are doing. To be honest, I don’t think it is worth the investment.
On the other hand, if you are willing to pay the $40/month (and have the resources to do so), you can do this yourself and do it as a one-time thing. Simply install Lets Encrypt on your server and then install the Let’s Encrypt App on your phone. From there, you just tell the Let’s Encrypt App to send your traffic through the servers to your website.
You should know that this is not the only time for your site to encrypt…
So I guess you still need to pay for the Lets Encrypt App. But in that case, you could simply install the app on your phone and then encrypt your site automatically. That way you can have a site that is 100% encrypted, and in case something goes wrong, your site is always up and running.
The problem is that you should not be running a website that is 100% encrypted on your phone. So a) you should have a separate server for storing your static content, and b) you should not be using a phone for that.
So we’re going to set up a completely encrypted site with just the code. We’re going to go with a2 because lets encrypt is great. The only problem I see is that we’re going to run this site on a phone, which means no browser extension to make use of. There are a few alternatives out there, but none of them require you to have a phone. Since we’re going for a2, the only thing we’re going to be using is a web server.
The alternative is to either do your own hosting with your own domain, or host your website on a remote server. The first option is a little more work, but if you want an unencumbered site that still has a phone at your disposal, then a2 hosting is a good choice. The only thing I see is that you’ll have to install a server in between your website and your phone.
The only reason why you would need to do this would be if you were hosting your website on a remote server and forgot to update the DNS settings on your phone. The other problem you might run into is that youre a bit of a security risk as a website you host on a remote server. This is because you have access to all the data that your website stores, and if youre doing a2 hosting, then it means that you have access to the server itself.
The problem with a2 hosting is that you can’t stop a server from going offline. This means that you have to be prepared for unexpected outages and the possibility that you will lose everything you have on your website. If youve got a website, its data will be at the heart of every email you send and every interaction with your website. If you dont have a backup, then your website is at risk and no one can help you.
The a2 hosting service itself is not as secure as it could be. The encryption is done through SSL. SSL is much better than the current public key encryption used in a2 hosting.
