Setting up Let's Encrypt on Nginx

Yesterday I setup HTTPS on this domain, and on val.digital. I was pleasently suprised by the ease of which this was acheived. Following the guide by Digital Ocean, it only took 30 minutes to set up the encryption for one domain, including auto-renewal through cron.

If your domain is not encrypted at the moment, I whole-heartedly recommend doing so through Let’s Encrypt. All you need to do is clone the git repository, run the letsencrypt-auto command and add some directives to your nginx config file for the site in question.
