HTTPS





johans
is Frihost server1 allowed to have HTTPS site implemented here?

Moved from General Chat Forum. As previously requested Johans can you please post anything to do with hosting in the Web Hosting Support Forum.

Unfortunately we cannot help you with SSL. Suggest you do some research on the topic first as it is not easy to install an SSL Certificate. You need to buy it first or get it free from places like Let's Encrypt, but not all free SSL Certificates are equal. You need to spend some time to study this first, compare the services etc.
johans
okay. thanks for your advise deanhills.

I spent some time trying to install the Let's Encrypt one, but it was fruitless because I was supposed to run a custom script which you can't do in this hosting unfortunately.

I totally agree with you restonpiston. Its hard to express your ideas on the web if the hosting has limitations..

Even uploading files in PHP the limit is only 2MB which is until now my site was still in offline.
restonpiston
Yeah, but it is also fun to think about different workarounds because of that.
From installing python packages to trying to import a previous web, it's all a challenge!

Also this hosting is free for us, so I am happy with what we have Very Happy

I haven't used Let's Encrypt myself, but know of someone who has successfully. As far as I know he has been using it on his hosting on Server 1. He says it can be done manually as opposed to automatically. Refer his post at FreeFTPSpace.org (Frihost's sister forum):
http://www.freeftpspace.org/forum/T-Any-Free-SSL-Certificate-Provider-yet?pid=21854#pid21854

The post may give you some pointers as to how to do it.

Just learned that Cloudflare provides free SSL. You can read more about this at the URL below:

Here is a good blog article about how to install a free SSL Certificate with StartSSL with cPanel.
