Nginx Configuration File - Using LetsEncrypt SSL HTTPS Certificates

This is somewhat my default configuration file for all my websites I run.

This might be handy for some folks.

# Advanced config for NGINX
    server_tokens off;
    add_header X-XSS-Protection "1; mode=block";
    add_header X-Content-Type-Options nosniff;

# Redirect all HTTP traffic to HTTPS
server {
   listen 80;
    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;

# SSL configuration
server {
   listen 443 ssl default deferred;
    ssl_certificate      /etc/letsencrypt/live/;
        ssl_certificate_key  /etc/letsencrypt/live/;

    # Improve HTTPS performance with session resumption
    ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:10m;
    ssl_session_timeout 5m;

    # Enable server-side protection against BEAST attacks
    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;

    # Disable SSLv3
    ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;

        # Diffie-Hellman parameter for DHE ciphersuites
        # $ sudo openssl dhparam -out /etc/ssl/certs/dhparam.pem 4096
        ssl_dhparam /etc/ssl/certs/dhparam.pem;

    # Enable HSTS (
    add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=63072000; includeSubdomains";  

    # Enable OCSP stapling (
    ssl_stapling on;
    ssl_stapling_verify on;
    ssl_trusted_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/;
    resolver valid=300s;
    resolver_timeout 5s;
