One of the final things I recommend is integrating your VPS with Let’s Encrypt to automatically issue and install SSL certificates on all your domains and sub-domains.
While the latest version of Web Host Manager offers AutoSSL by Como, I personally prefer Let’s Encrypt.
- SSH into your server
- Type in: /scripts/install_lets_encrypt_autossl_provider
- Login to Web Host Manager
- Click on Manage AutoSSL
- Click the ratio box beside Let’s Encrypt™
- Agree to the terms and create a new registration
- Click Save
Congratulations! As soon as your domains resolve to the DNS on your server, Let’s Encrypt will automatically generate a secure certificate for them (you can verify in Web Host Manager -> Manage SSL).
These are some basic, yet very powerful, security measures you can do to keep your VPS secure from hackers and evildoers.
