Hi Tasos - would it be possible to host the on https:// URL? Soon Chrome will start showing "Not Secure" for http:// URLs next to the URL bar, and since there are Downloads on I think it would give people additional assurance. Currently shows the valid certificate with the SANs including "DNS Name: *" but it redirects to - maybe something needs to be configured to show the same page as

    I guess I need to do this just to avoid the Chrome warnings, I'll talk with my hosting provider to see what needs to happen.

    Hey Tasos,

    Any update regarding this ? I love and support your work but just enabling HTTPS
    would give other potential security users the assurance that your software should be trusted.

    I brought this up again and I'm awaiting a response from my hosting provider.
    This seems like a simple config issue somewhere, although I've no idea where.

    Also, the software is served over HTTPS, as it's hosted on Github, and no sensitive info is transmitted between the visitors and the website.

    HTTPS would just look good, but it makes no sense technically -- unless I've overlooked something.

    The nightlies though could use a secure connection, but that's on a different host (I like to compartmentalize) and I'll look into that next.

    Thanks for the update Tasos. Yeah it should be a simple fix on their side in the config to redirect all port 80 requests to 443. And no you haven't overlooked anything but for the sake of HTTPS everything on the web, I think it's just better overall to enforce TLS.
