AD Admin Implements HTTPS (SSL Encrypted Communication)
We are happy to announce that we have implemented secure SSL (HTTPS) communication site wide across While we strive to provide quality content and provide a safe and feature rich platform for fellow aquarium hobbyists to communicate and socialize, we also strive to provide the most secure website possible.
We have always hosted the site on hardware dedicated to and worked to keep the underlying OS and software free of vulnerabilities and coding errors. The addition of SSL allows to give our visitors the piece of mind that when they use that their connection from their device to our webservers is encrypted and protected.
We appreciate those who visit our site and especially those who choose to become Members of our online Aquarium Hobbyist Community and share their passion for the aquarium hobby on our Member Pages, Forums and Comment Walls. Converting to HTTPS will help us protect our Members password protect logins, secure all web forms and secure network communications.
If you would like to learn more about SSL certificate based encryption, please see below.What’s an SSL certificate?
First things first. “SSL” is short for Secure Sockets Layer. In simpler terms, it’s how small business communicate with customers that they can browse, buy products or services, and share information safely with you online. Without getting overly technical, adding an SSL creates a safe connection for those kinds of activities.
Think of an SSL certificate as a giant windshield for when you drive on the information super-highway. You wouldn’t head out on your local freeway — especially at night in a rural area — without something between you and all the bugs. You likely couldn’t see, and besides, you’ve already had your protein for breakfast. In much the same way, an SSL certificate protects your site — and its visitors — from many digital bugs, worms and other nasty web creatures.
