  8. Hi. I've built a static website as per your previous video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACifzOIR_Ec&feature=youtu.be). Everything is great except it's "Not Secure". I'm trying to follow your instructions here for SSL (at 7:14) but you're talking about a VM instance and I don't have one of those (not needed for a static site). Am I missing something or am I looking in the wrong place? Thanks.
