In an attempt to improve security and privacy on the Internet, Google is encouraging websites to secure their site with an SSL certificate, aka https:// instead of http://
As you may have noticed, I just officially updated my domain to be under SSL. As I described in my It's LEMP not LAMP post that I use nginx for my web server. I thought I would share how easily I was able to convert my website to use SSL with nginx.
Before you begin, be sure you have already created your SSL certificate and have your certificate and private key files ready and uploaded to your server (I got my SSL cert free with my domain registration at Porkbun).
