Two days ago i was really in trouble when i was sending email from my professionnal account it was straight into spams i asked myself why is this happenning? then i headed to my cpanel account and saw that mail.mydomain.com among some of domains didnt have ssl up i was shocked.
Because few days ago i installed free ssls by let's encrypt (thanks to them ) for all my websites and thought i was good at least for three months but truth was i didnt enabled ssl for some of my subdomains and the term that guided me to the solution was Wildcard domain named *.mydomain.com it means basically ssl for everything that end with .mydomain.com eg
So i needed something called Certbot to do a task and since i am using windows os to install it there would be time consuming you would tell me Docker but nah with long cli commands no Thanks...
so a linux machine up and running was what i was looking for.
Thats's why I headed to my long time partner AWS and hoped that my free tier didnt end, with a matter of minutes i was running my ubuntu machine and i had installed my tools and did my stuff.
This is why you should have a cloud account no more virtualization nor dual boot in your machine just use one os of your cloud provider and shut it down when you finish to avoid unexpected expense in the future.
