Where can i look to get SSL certificate for https?

English is not my first language, please forgive me if i make mistakes.
Also I’ve gone back to studying in the field of IT and i m specializing in servers, networking and of course Linux.

I’ve been setting up apache and nginx servers for hosting websites or as reverse proxy in front of other apps, for example a seafile server. My apache/nginx servers do not have SSL certificates for https so I get the ugly message saying that my server is insecure. I can always use the option to click and say that i trust the site, but it is a waste of time and it is ugly work.

Can someone give me advice to find a way to get a certification without having to pay as for now this is just for studying purposes?

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Hi Marc,

Use Let’s Encrypt to get Free SSL/TLS Certificates for your apache and nginx servers. No need to spent a single cent and its extremely easy.


Thank you Lubos.

I’m taking a look at this right now.


A good place to look is cloudflare. You can get ssl services on top of other things
