Hello Fellow Webmasters..

Will SSL certificate add anything valuable to Adult Video Script site?

 

Happy Holiday...

No. SSL is more for business sites like shops. It's a kind of signal of trust that user data is safe. SSL is also required for embedding video player on some socials. Completely useless on adult video site. Have you seen one with SSL? Maybe some subdomain, but not main site URL.

SSL can slow down site little but it's really not much, 100ms or less for a file.

 

Switching to HTTP from HTTPS means 301 redirection. It's new URL, it'like new website for Google.

This will take months until Google will see all new URLs, and most possibly your traffic will hurt a lot.

Time when 301 was working flawlessly is gone. Now Google looks at it very suspicious.

You should rather focus on a bug you have in your header section that I describd. This really sucks.

 

BTW. I have SSL on streaming domain.

I did it to have option to post videos on socials and nothing more.

The main benefit of SSL is that it provides the user with an encrypted connection. If you’re dealing with any sensitive information always use SSL.

 

I use SSL for my video sharing application because it requires payments and sensitive data that must be sent over a secure connection.

 

These days it is becoming standard practice to use SSL.

 

Completely useless on adult video site. Have you seen one with SSL? Maybe some subdomain, but not main site URL.

Thanks, theone

I have managed to install the SSL certificate and can redirect to https from .htaccess. But the videos won't play.

What do I need to do? Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

Really hard to say without seeing your config.

 

You obtained a valid SSL certificate from an authorized authority and not a self-signed certificate, correct?

 

Did you update the web server to listen on port 443?

Google webmasters have already emailed me about https
With problems in my web for not having ssl and how to put passwords etc.

 

 

email transalte :

 

Starting in January 2017, Chrome (version 56 and later) will mark as non-secure pages that collect passwords or credit card information, unless they are published through the HTTPS protocol.
The following URLs include fields for entering passwords or credit card data for which the new Chrome warning will be displayed. Review these examples to see where the notifications will appear and you can take the necessary steps to continue to protect user data. It is not a complete list; They are just examples.

Hi theone

I bought the SSL certificate from cPanel and it was auto installed. Site works fine with https but videos won't play.

 

in httpd.conf

following lines exist:

 

    Listen 0.0.0.0:443
    Listen [::]:443

 

NameVirtualHost (Site IP):80
NameVirtualHost (SIte IP):443
<VirtualHost (Site IP):443>
  ServerName desihoes.com

 

I am using apache mod_streaming. Do you think that might need some tuning..

Thanks

 

Thanks for taking time out and helping me on this..

And that's what I meant.

User theone used to write and suggest from his own point of view.

 

But I know what are most users of this script, and so I suggested to conside such change well.

Personally I do have SSL working well on my own sites, so it's not that I'm against, but I realize what trouble it can be for other people.

 

It's not that bad when you plan SSL for completely new website.

But if this is already established site most here may come into many troubles, not only including streaming, but also trouble with grey padlock and invalid certificate signal due to mixed content, not working ads. Not many here has enough experience to manage it all.

Also such move to HTTPS URL usually means drop in search index. Google always say that 301 migration to new URL is safe, but the truth is that not only it takes weeks, but also always loose some ranks, sometimes a lot.  Backlinks must be calculated from new and many appear as dead. This means drop in backlinks, drop in rank.

 

desihoes, first you must care about website redirection from http to https as currently this is one big duplicate, accessible both.

Your padlock is grey, certificate invalid. This means more trouble. Grey padlock means mixed content. HTTPS website cannot point to HTTP URL in any place. This may require to verify lot of your content. Most possibly player and corresponding scripts also produce mixed content error. Scripts from such mixed URL cannot be loaded.

Thanks, Dargre

Anyways to fix all this? I can reinstall the script.

You are right, player setup need to be changed. If I select AVS default player, it works fine with https. May have to get ad codes that will work with https. Sure lots of work..

You must have hardcoded URL with domain name in player template files.

This is not difficult to correct, but only you know what is inside your files.

 

Anyway even if this fixed, what sense is to have invalid certificate?

You have much more mixed content issues across entire website then player files only.

This cuases that your site is not marked as safe due to SSL coss domain mixed content (padlock is grey in browser instead of green).

One more time, each link to any resource (css, javascript, javascript ad, image, iframe, etc) mus be https if it's http now. You must search across your template files for "http", change it to https, verify if it can be https. It happens that such "http" links may appear in javacript too.

And then most important is to have valid 301 website redirection to https protocol.

If this not done and not verified, there's no sense and it's harmful to use SSL.

You must learn it and modify files yourself as nobody's going to waste his free time  searching through your entire website and files for mixed content issues.

 

There is website https://www.whynopadlock.com/

which helps to find mixed content. It may not find all issues, and won't tell you which file to change in what place, but it's good point to start. You must remember that invalid grey padlock may concern many different pages of your website.

desiholes If you look with your web with https you will see what indicates dargre many recourses are not https like advertising and that marks your website in gray and not green trust 100% sure.

 

 

To have http advertising and other things http mark in gray not sure.

Well, with little help from dargre's post, I went ahead and tried few things.

changed the config path file to https

redirect in .htacess to https

any links I had within the site, changed those to https.

Now, index page shows secure green padlock.

Moving onto other pages now. check it out

https://www.desihoes.com

 

:) Anybody else want to change to SSL. I should be able to help. But to get that free help, you must check my site out and see if you find any insecure page. :mellow:

Looks good!
I have not found any wrong link.
 
But I have a doubt, all advertising has to be https there are many popunders banner companies that do not have https or can not put.
In this case that happens.

I have all the ads the way they were. Most of them already are secured. You can see that on my site that all ads are showing and still have the green padlock. Actually all the links to other sites doesn't have to be secure. Only the pages on your site that link to your site's content must adhere to ssl standard.
