Site Comment On Blog SSL - Going from HTTP to HTTPS

This is just some additional anecdotal information, which is why I am leaving it as a comment. This blog thing was already too long.

So I started out trying to secure my son's website. I knew this was a big thing that was going to really be important soon but I wasn't confident I would be able to do it. I had tried before to setup SSL certs before and it never went well. My son doesn't really use his site at all, so I figured his was the best to mess with.

Within 20 minutes of starting out I had his site secured with SSL certs, which included time I wasted because I had uploaded the required files improperly. Because I had to go back a step, the files had changed as they are simply text files with randomly generated values that only serve to prove you 'own' the site (or at least have the proper access). This blunder really did add some time.

Once his site was done, and I was sure it was done (as sure as I could be anyway), I started on my own site. Having had the experience with his site, now knowing what I was doing, the entire process start to finish only took about 5 minutes. When doing his, not only did my mistake take some time, but learning in the first place made it take longer.

Several days later I wanted to try securing the 'subdomains' that aren't really subdomains, but aliases hoping to use those wildcards (*). However, that turned out to be a mess; I followed the instructions exactly, or at the very least I am pretty sure I did, but all I ever got were errors. I don't think my current host was very good with that method. Go To...

Personally, I currently use Firefox as my primary. However, I am starting to get annoyed with it as it just doesn't function as well as it once did, so I may be looking elsewhere. Chrome may be my default eventually, I just don't care for Google as a whole... Go To...

This is just a test comment from my phone. Nothing fancy, just plain text. BB Code is just not fun on a mobile device, but I don't have an answer to that myself. I have only recently been trying to use my phone for web browsing a bit more than before Go To...
