SSL 12 hours to get a green padlock?
SSL Secure. 12 hours slaving away on my computer to get a green padlock? I’d have been quicker going to B&Q. ;) It was an S S ‘ell of a time getting it all sorted out but well worth it. Everybody likes to be secure don’t they? Here at Warren Media we take your browsing security very seriously. As we use two different CDN’s (that’s Content Delivery Networks for the less geeky amongst us.) we needed three SSL certificates. One for our server, one for our first CDN which handles security and another for our main CDN which handles our images and videos.
So basically, when you browse to wwww.warrenmedia.co.uk you are actually going to httpS://www.warrenmedia.co.uk. This is a secure page, using SSL, industry standard encryption so you are browsing securely. Of course we aren’t an ecommerce site, and never ask for credit card details, although if you’re feeling generous…. eh, hold on… err… did I say that out loud? ;) Anyway, even though we aren’t an ecommerce site, it’s always better to visit a secure site…
The internet can be a big, bad scary place, but with a bit of preparation and common sense you can make it more secure. Nothing’s guaranteed, and SSL’s are basically just encryption between your browser and our server, but hey, you’re worth it. ;)
