I'd like to thank GoDaddy for failing to auto-renew our SSL certificate even though there are 2 payment methods on file and it was set to auto-renew and they let me know in advance they were going to auto-renew it. Thank you GoDaddy. Since this was not done, the SSL Certificate expired. With that being said, we had to do setup on the server and on GoDaddy at the last minute. The website was actually available if you knew how to get around the notice that was posted telling you the site was not available or lacked security. This is why we pay for an SSL Certificate, for the protections of the website and the members. What is an SSL certificate you ask:
And now you know. Sorry for the inconvenience.An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL technology. Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.
