SSL all over the place

ansgar posted 2 months ago in News

For various security reasons, and due to the login page on heidisql.com I have just created and set up an SSL certificate here. Of course there is also Google who says that they downrank pages with an unsecured login-page. Well, they're right (in this particular point).

Thanks to the forum user Cyann for precise information.

PS: do you know Let's Encrypt? It's a big open source project (sponsored for instance by Mozilla and Cisco) that allows you to have HTTPS certificates for free

No. I bought a cheap certificate for ~30€ a year from the hosting provider where heidisql.com lives. The provider is also listed under "No planned support", so I would have to install the certificate manually. Well, I'm happy to have it running, so the 30€ don't really matter.

30 for one year? I think you have enough time to move to Let's Encrypt or any free alternative (maybe StartSSL/WoSign became trusted again, for example). Just to avoid further payments.

"The provider is also listed under "No planned support"" In case of VPS you can ignore that. VPS may cost ~6€/month, check Contabo (500Gb HDD is nice though) for example.

The source code still contains APPDOMAIN = 'http:// so donators’ e-mail addresses are sent in plain text over the web (CheckWebpage.URL := APPDOMAIN + 'hasdonated.php?email='+EncodeURLParam(Email);).
