Since I deal with the web at work, I know exactly what the problem is, I've already posted about it over in the Constructive Criticism section.

TL;DR https:// web pages use something called a certificate that they get from someone that guarantees that when you connect to https://mustangranchbrothel.com, you're really connected to them.  Certificates are only valid for a specific site or sites, and as far as they are concerned https://mustangranchbrothel.com and https://www.mustangranchbrothel.com are different.

The certificate on the main web page is only valid for mustangranchbrothel.com, not for www.mustangranchbrothel.com.  If you connect without the www it'll mostly work, except the videos don't.  The correct solution is to get a single certificate that covers both sites, and in fact you should be able to get one that covers the forums as well.  That ought to make the job of managing the web site easier since you've only got one certificate to buy, and then it'll work for the whole web page.

tldr; Nothing to worry about. As more of the web goes to https:// this notice is just to make people more aware of sites that have not.


Browsers such as Safari have started adding this for sites that don't use encryption for the connection. (i.e. HTTP versus HTTPS). Nothing has changed on the Mustang Ranch servers.

This new warning just wants to make it clear that it is possible for the data being sent between your browser and the server to be snooped on or modified in transit.
As has always been the case for normal HTTP connections!

While most websites will and should start using encrypted connections, the vast majority of our web browsing in the previous years has not, so this is nothing really new.

Historically the only sites using https:// this were ones dealing with financial or other private data, but more and more regular sites are doing it. Without getting in to too much detail, some carriers have been inserting ads into the content they carry. HTTPS pretty much prevents this.

This site is not secure

This might mean that someone’s trying to fool you or steal any info you send to the server. You should close this site immediately.


Go to your Start page        I get this screen when I go to 'lineup' and click on Lena Starr's photos.  Is this happening to anyone else?
