Install SSL certificate for free in Digital Ocean using let’s encrypt ubuntu

Hi Guys, SSL is the most prominent factor in SEO and digital marketing, even most browsers show it non-secure when you don’t hae SSL installed on your site and your visitors get away. So in this article, I will cover how to install a free SSL certificate if you are using any cloud server with Ubuntu OS. I’m taking an example of Digital Ocean.

I have just set up a sub-domain http://nexgi.laestrella.store (and this blog is in the same continuation of that – to better understand please go through How to setup Sub-domain in digital Ocean & Activate SSL)

In this we will learn or do:

  1. Check Certbot is install or not?
    1. What is Certbot?
    2. How to check if Certbot is already installed?
  2. Install SSL on domain or sub-domain?
    1. Install on non-www
    2. Install on www
    3. Both non-www and www
    4. Restart your server
    5. Test SSL certificate

Step1. Check Certbot is install or not?

What is Certbot?

Certbot is a client that helps in installing SSL certificates, also provides automatic redirection facilities to http –> https. In simple language, you can say Certbot is a software that helps to install SSL certificates.

How to check if Certbot is already installed?

Open your terminal through SSH or putty and type following command –

certbot

You are getting this No command ‘certbot’ found – means you need to install it.
Install it by pressing the following command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot

Then

sudo apt-get update

Then Final

sudo apt-get install python-certbot-apache

Step 2. Install SSL on domain or sub-domain

There are three possibilities of this command to install SSL on your domain or sub-domain (Replace your domain/sub-domain from the bold text)

  1. If you want to install on non-www
    use the command:

    sudo certbot --apache -d nexgi.laestrella.store
  2. If you want to install on www
    use the command:

    sudo certbot --apache -d www.nexgi.laestrella.store
  3. In case you want to install on both non-www and www
    use the command:

    sudo certbot --apache -d nexgi.laestrella.store -d www.nexgi.laestrella.store
    install letsencrypt digital ocean ubuntu

Then it will ask for redirection – select 1. (No. Redirection – check read marker in below image).
install letsencrypt ubuntu 16.04 nginx
and it will install your SSL certificates.

Just restart your server by pressing following command –

sudo service apache2 restart

You can test your configuration at (replace bold with your domain/sub-domain)

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=nexgi.laestrella.store https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=www.nexgi.laestrella.store

That’s it – you are ready for testing.
Just hit your domain with https like in my case

https://nexgi.laestrella.store/

free ssl installation in ubuntuhttps://www.nexgi.laestrella.store/

install letsencrypt ubuntu 16.04 nginx

How to block Youtube Ads

You will need around 1430 life spans to watch the complete videos on Youtube. About 400 hours of video content is being added every minute. Nothing is free forever, that is why we need to pay a small price in terms of our time. By watching ads we support the content creators and developers but there is an increase in the duration of ads and you have to watch in full. More and more people are asking the same question – How to block youtube ads.

Sometimes the ads are useful, as you are targeted because of your usage history. But sometimes you have to watch the 30 seconds commercial for watching a 2 minutes quick video and the ad is pretty irrelevant for you.

Mostly times users want to stop or skip the ads but they don’t know how to do that. Ad blocking is not illegal. Let’s get started then.

How to block ads in Chrome Browser

It’s pretty easy to install an Adblocker plugin into your browser and get rid of those annoying ads. It also prevents you from full page ads and popup ads.
Steps:
Open new tab in Chrome and click on the colorful square grid on the left corner of the screen. Select Webstore. You can directly access the webstore by typing chrome://apps/ into the URL bar.

Type Adblock in the search box on the left panel and click on the Add to Chrome Button.

Cheers, you’ve saved a lot of data and time. Have a look at Youtube with and without adblock installed in the browser.

Without Adblock plugin.
As you can see there is a huge banner ad set to autoplay.

10 cyber security tips for humans

Cyber Security became an important part now-a-days when we share our personal,financial data over internet on daily basis. Someone said precaution is better than cure. So we have listed 10 important cyber security tips for you. Most of the web-services are secure and no one can breach that security layer. It’s nearly impossible to get into someone’s Facebook or Gmail account. That’s why hackers are always looking for security loop holes to gain access to your accounts.

1. Humans are easy targets for hackers.

If you are reading this, probably you are a human being. Never ever think that you can’t be targeted by hackers. And why would someone target me.

via GIPHY

2. Eight characters are not enough to protect you in 2018.

Good password can give you good protection. Use a strong mix of characters and don’t repeat the same for every site on the web. Most of the times people get attacked because of obvious and weak passwords. If you are using a less secure app or website, then you are an easy target for Brute Force attacks.

via GIPHY

3. Lock when you leave to prevent unauthorized access.

Have you ever left your safe doors open for someone? Leaving your device unattended is one and the same thing. Your personal data, which might be not so personal can be useful for someone else. Be it a phone, computer or a tablet make sure you lock your device when you leave for even short duration of time. If you have a good habit of keeping a backup of your sensitive data on USB drives, then you should encrypt them as well.

via GIPHY

4. Practice Safe Clicking.

Huge Download Now buttons are made to appeal you to click them. Don’t fall for them, they are too big to be true. Always be careful when clicking attachments links or emails. Now a days Google Chrome awares you when you are about to visit a spammy link, just follow that. If you find a link having spelling mistakes or anything suspicious, then don’t click that.

via GIPHY

5. Always go for safe browsing.

Don’t use someone else’s device for banking, shopping or counting the likes for your last Facebook post. Avoid public WiFi networks, as they can result in data theft. Drinking 2 liters water a day and using Incognito browsing both are good for your health. Make it a habit, open an incognito / private browser window before you start working on someone else’s device. As once you close a private window, it leaves no traces behind, not 100% secure, but it might save you from fishy browser plugins and leaving a logged in session.

via GIPHY

6. Back Up.

If you have some important data other than songs, movies, softwares  then we suggest you to take backup of your data regularly. Popular services like Google Drive, One Drive and Drop Box provide around 15-20 gb of cloud storage for free. So just take benefit of such platforms.

via GIPHY

7. Physical Cyber Security.

You are smart enough that you won’t plug a banana into the USB port of your computer. But you are not smart enough to detect a malware by just watching an infected external hard drive, pendrive, SD card or a smartphone. Keep your antivirus software active and updated to avoid malware attacks. If you are using a Windows 8 or Windows 10 operating system on your computer, then you can rely upon windows defender and there’s no need to purchase any additional antivirus software.

via GIPHY

8. Don’t share everything everywhere.

Keep a track on how sensitive data you are revealing on social networks. Your photos can be misused easily. While you are being social, you are sharing where you go to school, your workplace, where you go for vacations. You can be easily tracked by such traces. Avoid accepting friend requests from unknowns and make sure you use the privacy options provided by the social networking sites.

via GIPHY

9. Don’t provide your contact or any personal details to a middle man.

If someone calls or emails you and asks for your sensitive information avoid that or clearly say NO. Even if he’s telling you that you’ve nominated for United States presidential election your answer should be a big NO.

via GIPHY

10. Keep reviewing your accounts.

Be sure to monitor your social accounts for any suspicious activity. If you see anything unfamiliar, it’s possible that the other guy has gained access to your account. To avoid that you are suggested to follow the above 9 points and keep changing your password monthly, it will logout you from all other active sessions.

via GIPHY

Share with your friend so they don’t repeat the same mistakes and make them aware about it.
