How to Add Free SSL in WordPress with Let’s Encrypt
By listening to the name of the SSL SSL you must have understood how much it is necessary for our blog or website. If you use a normal blog then it is not so important for you. But if you have a website from which you do business, then you must use SSL in your website. So friends in today’s post, we are going to tell you that if you create a blog in WordPress then how can you use SSL for free.
So before knowing this, we know that what happens to SSL is that
you open many types of websites in the browser. You have seen the green color next to the URL of some website and will also be secured in front of it. And HTTP will be replaced by https. So this means that SSL is being used on this website. This website is absolutely safe. No one can hack the website with SSL. If your website opens in https instead of HTTP, then such a website ranks well in google too. Google also likes such a website and its results show first. So now you have come to understand how much SSL is necessary.
But using the SSL if it was done some time ago was very expensive. But now we get this service free from Cloudflare. Now we do not need to take expensive SSL. We can use this service of Cloudflare for free.
