How to get a free Let's Encrypt Certificate for HTTP/2

Let's Encrypt is a non-profit organisation that provides free SSL/TLS certificates. They are currently in Open Beta and you can get a free certificate starting today.

Let's Encrypt provides an Open Source application for generating Certificates: https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt

The project offers a quick start guide for running it. Here are the steps:

1. Install the software

user@webserver:~$ git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt
user@webserver:~$ cd letsencrypt
user@webserver:~/letsencrypt$ ./letsencrypt-auto --help

2. Create a certificate

./letsencrypt-auto --apache -d thing.com -d www.thing.com -d otherthing.net

3. Install the certificate

Installing the certificate to various web servers can be tricky, but using the Mozilla SSL Configuration Generator is a great option.
