The site is now encrypted thanks to

Let’s Encrypt, offers free certificates. I’m in the beta program, so I have been able to get certificates for this site early on. It’s really easy. There is a piece of software, which gets the certificates and configures you webserver. For now Apache and Nginx are supported. Read the documentation.

I’m using lighttpd, so I need to do a bit of manual work.  Lighttpd needs to be configured with two certificate-related files pr. domain. is the file /etc/letsencrypt/live/DOMAIN_NAME/fullchain.pem

ssl.pemfile is the the following files combined (Use the command cat: /etc/letsencrypt/live/DOMAIN_NAME/cert.pem /etc/letsencrypt/live/DOMAIN_NAME/privkey.pem

I have two domains on my server: and

$SERVER["socket"] == "" { ssl.engine = "enable" ssl.use-sslv2 = "disable" ssl.use-sslv3 = "disable" ssl.cipher-list = "ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:DHE$ ssl.dh-file = "/etc/ssl/private/dhparams.pem" ssl.honor-cipher-order = "enable" = "secp384r1" ssl.pemfile = "/etc/lighttpd/" = "/etc/lighttpd/" $HTTP["host"] =~ "(^|www\.)" { ssl.pemfile = "/etc/lighttpd/" = "/etc/lighttpd/" } } The certificates expire after 90 days, so the should be renewed (using the tool) after, say, 60 days.

Read the tutorial form Digtial Ocean on how to secure more than one site using Lighttpd and a single IP.
