Using the wrong SSL/TLS Cert is worse than using no cert.:
I'm betting 99.999% of the people here just ignore the warning, add an exception, and blindly continue. However, the (unwritten) security-implication here: Anybody with a system hosted on hostgator.com, now or in the future, is then able to silently MITM scrape everyone's usernames, e-mail address, passwords, etc.Code:www.alloyavenue.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.hostgator.com, hostgator.com Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN
This is worse than having no-cert at all, because then there's no illusion of security (now and in the future).
OTOH, I realize certs. aren't cheap. I own one for a personal domain, and pony up around $230/year, others are more/less expensive.
Maybe we get some members to pool funds and get a real one?
I'd certainly chip-in along with 10-20 other people.
To me, $10-20/year is a bargain for the help available here. How about we pool via via https://www.patreon.com ?
