We have previously seen how to set up a GitHub to Jenkins pipeline with webhooks, this time we are going to continue on that lesson and learn how to configure Jenkins to build and push Docker images to DockerHub. We’ll also see how to create images for both arm64 as well as amd64 architectures machines. Keep on reading.
Today I'll go through how get and configure a HTTPS certificate from Let's Encrypt for all the subdomain. I have already posted about how we can automate installation of Jenkins & Nginx with Ansible.

This means it will affect SEO in some way. Today in the age of HTTP2, https is defualt. Default in the sense that many server software will only allow HTTP2 when https is configured.
Docker makes it easy to develop and deploy application, reducing friction between the processes. And ElasticBeanstak is a great platform build upon EC2 infrastructure which provides provisioning capability without much effort.
