Force https, can for example use https://letsencrypt.org/ for certificate

For security for both project-gc and its users, I recommend forcing https for project-gc.com.

great idea, I'm voting for it!
project-gc.com does not need a certificate from letsencrypt, it has one from Comodo already. If you just write in https:// instead of http:// you will be served the https version of project-gc. There will be quite a number of insecure (unencrypted) elements on the page, but the page itself will be encrypted.
If you look at my suggestion one more time, you will see that it I wrote: "forcing https for project-gc.com".

Using Letsencrypt was a suggestion.
@kro8: Yes, I am aware that forcing https was your suggestion. If you look at my comment one more time you can see that I am not commenting on that part. I am merely pointing out that project-gc already has a TLS certificate from Comodo.
