https isn't working.

(1/3) > >>

Just sayin...

2022 and still no https... In these days it's really not done to pass your login credentials over a http link, for everyone to read along with you. Why isn't something trivial as LetsEncrypt not implemented? Free to use yet secure connections.

you know how much of a pain in the ass https implementation is especially when you dont want to pay for a cert and you do it through lets encrypt and it expires and your website goes down cause certbot doesn't verbose worth a damn if it has an issue and it takes you a year to iron out the script to auto renew cause you can only activate a recert every 90 days even though they say you can do it every 60 but you can't cause it says its not close enough to expiry date to renew so it takes 3 months to find out if it works and then you discover it doesn't so you change your script and wait another 3 months to see if your website displays or not?

i hope my works server never goes down cause if it does, i'm screwed.

Well... 'the world' uses Let's Encrypt, so I guess some parts of it work quite well :) Personally I've never ever had any issue with renewing Let's Encrypt certificates on either Linux or Windows. For Linux (Ununtu LTS) we use a simple cron job, which has been running for about 6 years now without issues, even after server OS upgrades. It would certainly improve site security.

Same for mail. I am currently locked out of my main account here, as I changed that to a hotmail address, which seems to block mail from AradeControl at a rather low level. Looking into it, there is a practically useless SPF record, no DKIM, no DMARC and TLS1.0 and 1.1 being configured. Being an owner of an IT company, and having had to help several customers out of issues with mailflow not working correctly, I can't blame Microsoft for blocking those mails. In fact, if everyone blocked unsecure (email) connections, the internet would be a much safer place.

It doesn't take a lot of effort to take things up to a better level of security. If you need any help or suggestions, just ask!

Go away, noob.
