How to Get Free SSL Forever

 Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a standard security technology for establishing encrypted connections between servers and clients. SSL allows sensitive information such as account numbers, credit card numbers, and login data to be sent securely. 
In general, the information that a web browser sends to a web server is in plain text. This information is risky being stolen by irresponsible parties. SSL is able to encrypt the information so that it cannot be accessed carelessly. 

Furthermore, SSL is a security protocol. This protocol governs the specific algorithms that must be used. The SSL protocol specifies the encryption variable when there is a transmission between the data and the link. To ensure a secure connection, web browsers and web servers require an SSL certificate. You can identify websites that use SSL technology by ensuring the https prefix in the URL.
Therefore, implementing SSL technology on your website can significantly increase the security of your website.

Troubleshoot Error While Issuing SSL Certificate

The error “well-known / acme-challenge accessible in your webroot?”

If you encounter the error message Failed to issue certificate: The Let’s Encrypt HTTP challenge failed – is .well-known / acme-challenge accessible in your webroot? when it comes to issuing an SSL certificate, you don’t have to worry. This problem sometimes appears and how to solve it is very easy. 

There are two reasons why this problem can occur.

1. Domain names, either with www or without www, do not point to the Niagahoster servers . Generally, this problem arises because the domain name points to Cloudflare. Make sure you point your domain name to Niagahoster’s servers. Then, try again. Change sometimes doesn’t happen right away. This process can take a few minutes to 24 hours after you make your changes. Ask CSA Niagahoster if the problem still occurs.

2. Problems with redirects in .htaccess . Make sure your .htaccess is not blocked like the example blocking directory shown below.

RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} -d [OR]

RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} -f

RewriteRule "(^|/)." - [F]

To fix this, rename your .htaccess file to .htaccess.txt . Then, try to issue the SSL certificate again. After you have successfully issued your SSL certificate, return the file name to .htaccess as before.
