Why is artisanssquare not a secure site?

DragonLady

Because it does not need to be. Everything that is posted here is either viewable by the public or requires a password. There is no sensitive data like credit card numbers anywhere on the site, and the only personally identifiable information exchanged is done so by the individual members.

I get that @DragonLady, but do you think it could be scaring off potential (paying) members? We've seen this subject come up before and not everyone really understands (or even wants to understand for various reasons) the secure cert and what it actually does. We all have been schooled to watch for that HTTPS:// in the url and it if it isn't there then "watch out", it's not a safe site. Pretty scary for folks that don't live and breathe computers.

What does a secure certificate cost a year? Isn't it like 85 bucks?

I don't think it's very expensive. I can ask our hosts what is available. I'm mostly just slightly opposed because since net neutrality was ended the search engines are giving priority to shopping sites, which almost always need to be secure and I think they're using that feature as a filtering tool for indexing.
