It’s time to point the domain name
at this website. For reference, the docs I referenced for this are noted below.
The DNS record updates by the registrar were fast, gitlab domain verification worked first time, and the integrated Let’s Encrypt feature got a domain-validated (OID 188.8.131.52.2.1) certificate for the website within minutes.
After writing about Let’s Encrypt (Chapter 11) it’s nice to see it working smoothly just as advertised. Flipping a switch in the settings was all it took to get the certificate – it was easier than editing the DNS records for the website hosting.
