The title sounds a bit like geographical coordinates or travel directions, doesn't it?

But no, Sunday, 10 January 2016 was the first full day since MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG transfers all data to you, and receives all data from you, using SSL data encryption (Secure Socket Layer)! So from today you may visit, instead of The small letter s at the front makes a huge difference, safety-wise.

The move from http to https was a lot of work, and it started out with worries because on 9 January 2016 initially the move took the site down. Here's the "photo story":

First you may have seen something like this:

http to https move problems

Then you may have seen this:

http to https move problems

Then your browser may have shown something like this:

http to https move problems

... or maybe this:

http to https move problems

At this point our web admin got a LOT of work to iron out smaller and bigger problems.

But now the result is: MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG is safe!

The SSL data encryption fits very well to our new website design and functionality. grin

So how does MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG now compare with BIG AMAZON?

Amazon SSL security report

As you can see:

  • Certificate quality: the same
  • Protocol support quality: the same
  • Key exchange quality: the same
  • Cipher Strength: MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG better than BIG AMAZON!

Nice. grin
