SSL & HTTPS:// Implemented On The Signpost
Well, that turned out to be easier than I expected. Thanks to 1&1IONOS who look after the servers that the Signpost runs on, we now have a bright and shiny SSL security certificate.
Having installed it on the site, the site now shows as being secured (see the padlock symbol circled in red in the image below). This means any data sent between your browser and the Signpost (and vice versa) cannot be read by anyone else while it being transmitted.
This should not cause any problems for users of the site. If you have any difficulties that you think maybe the result of this change please email the editor: firstname.lastname@example.org.
