I wanted to share a simple and free method to add SSL to your website, so that it runs under HTTPS (HTTP Secure). This is done for security reasons and will also give your site a boost on search engines. First, you will go to SSL for Free. This is a great site to create and manage your SSL certificates.
SSL for Free To verify your site, you can go to Manual Verification and download a text file to a .well-known/acme-challenge folder on your site. After clicking to verify the site, it will allow you to download a trusted SSL certificate for free and you will also get a private.key. SSL Files
  • If you're having problems hitting the verification file, you might have to adjust the permissions on the .well-known folder or files.
  • If you're using .NET and still having problems, try this code in Startup.cs in the void Configure function:
// SSL app.UseStaticFiles(); app.UseStaticFiles(new StaticFileOptions { FileProvider = new PhysicalFileProvider(Path.Combine(Directory.GetCurrentDirectory(), @"wwwroot/.well-known")), RequestPath = new PathString("/.well-known"), ServeUnknownFileTypes = true // serve extensionless file });
If you're running on IIS, there is one additional step in order to convert these files to a .pfx file. For this I recommend using this SSL converter site. SSL Converter Now you will have a .pfx file with a private key. On Windows, you can just double click the file to add it to your local machine's certificate store. Now in IIS, when you bind your site to port 443, your new certificate will appear in the SSL certificate drop down list! I'd like to look into a way to automate renewing of certificates! What sites and tools do you use?
