How can I activate Let's Encrypt for my domain?

Please note that an appropriate hosting plan is required if you want to use Let's Encrypt.

If you want to enable SSL or HTTPS for one or more subdomains, click [My Hosting] in the navigation bar in the easyname control panel, and then click [Subdomains].
On this page all your subdomains are listed. To the left of each subdomain or domain, you will find a blue drop-down menu labelled "HTTP://". If you click on it, the menu opens with the following options:

"Activate HTTPS": If you flip this switch and enable HTTPS, a Let's Encrypt certificate is issued and the subdomain is configured to use it. This will make your website reachable via https://.

"Redirect HTTP to HTTPS?": Should you enable this option, calling up the subdomain or your web page with http:// will always redirect to https://.
After clicking on the "SAVE" button, your changes will take effect within a few minutes.
