Free SSL certificate on an Azure Website

Over the last last year it has become more and more required for websites to be secured using SSL cerificates. But what if you don't really want to pay for a ssl certificate and isn't worried about a green seal verification?

Well, all you need a a certificate from Let's Encrypt, the free SSL provider.

Last year when I tried adding it to one of my other websites it was quite a mission and there weren't much documentation on it for Azure Websites. Today I thought I would try again to add ssl to my blog, and guess what? Scott Hanselman has posted a very nice blog post on how to add this to an Azure Website. I was able to get it set up in just 5 minutes.

I am from now on adding it to all my sites by default.
