Turning on SSL for rockman-gearup.com

Post by rbc »

A lot of web sites are mandating use of SSL to encrypt web site communications. I've been thinking about enabling SSL for rockman-gearup.com. How does everyone else feel about that? There's a little poll attached.

Best,

How will this affect the board? Will I notice something different or have to do something special?

It won't change much, except your browser will show the site is secure. You shouldn't have to do anything special.

If I won't notice anything different, and I don't have to do anything special, then yeah. :)

Hi Everybody,

I've enabled SSL but it's not mandatory yet. You can connect using the URL:

https://rockman-gearup.com/

Let me know if it doesn't work for you. I'll make SSL mandatory at some point, but that will be in a few months.

Best,
