Server Upgrade
« on: November 11, 2017, 03:40:43 PM »
Our server control panel is approaching End Of Life (EOL) so in order to maintain stability we need to move the website over to a new server. This operation is planned for tonight (11th November) after 11pm.
There will be a period of downtime and all Web and email services will be unavailable. All functionality should be restored by tomorrow morning.
Apologies for the short notice but a window of opportunity popped up so thought we'd best get it done.
We've been able to improve our server and infrastructure thanks to your kind donations. Hope to be back up and running very soon!

Mods, a favour if you could.
Would you be able to send an email to info@cockersonline.co.uk
Just need to test incoming email from external IPs.

Got that and replied, thank you!
Works coming in but if you could check you got my reply that'd be great.

Just noticed that my browser is saying that:

Your connection to this web site is not encrypted. This makes it easier for someone to steal sensitive information like passwords.

Is this something to do with your set up?

Passwords are encrypted but we don't use https

At what point do you see this message pop up on your browser? Before or upon entering your password etc?

Don't know if it's a recent modification to my browser set up but the web site addresses that appear across the top of my browser now have an (i) indicator against them if you click on that the message comes up.
I'm using windows 10.
 
It just rattled me for a moment, but most web sites seem to have this against them, except the serious stuff which have the green padlock.

I have noticed that some sites such as M&S only have the (i) indicator, but if you go to buy something, then the padlock appears.

Red warnings also appear if the site is considered unsafe.

Guess I'm just getting extra edgy about internet security these days.

Happy Christmas.
