You could simple make a button/link with a text like "This site is in https, click here to view via https", maybe add a little warning "might not function 100%". Https Everywhere works with a whitelist. Can't find how-to real quick, but this rulsets page might help. I'm not aware of any preference or setting in the browser. You can't send a header "https, ...

It is very common practice to redirect to error pages when putting in a large class of redirects. In addition to wholesale HTTP to HTTPS redirects, this often happens when: You redirect from naked domain to www (or the other way around) You redirect from one domain name to another You redirect an entire directory Redirecting to a 404 page may not be ...

You asked quite a few questions and I suspect you know most of the answers already. So to clear up some confusion, I will address the subject of changing the domain name since this sounds like the new question. If you need more, please let us know. Keywords in domain names mean almost nothing anymore and exact matches rarely happen as a result. That was a ...

2048 bit signatures You seem to be mixing up the signed certification to that of the actual encryption rate. Nowadays most good SSL providers will use a NIST recommended 2048 bit signed certification, because SHA2 is becoming the norm and actually recommended encryption rate you should be looking for is 256bit minimal however SHA2 supports 224, 256, 384 or ...

It's a myth that HTTPS is slower than HTTP. Yes, your site may be a little bit slower but this can be prevented. Please check out this article for suggestions. From SEO perspective, it's definitely better to use HTTPS. As you've already said, Google will reward sites using HTTPS. You might want to read the official blog article from Google for more ...

dan says: When you log into GoDaddy, under My Account -> Products you should see "SSL". Click the "Options" button there and select the checkbox to cancel it. It will take a day to remove the SSL from your hosting account. You may also need to call the hosting department, or send them an email if it's still there (clear your browser cache when checking). ...

Don’t use protocol-relative Schema.org URIs: I wouldn’t expect all Microdata consumers to handle these URIs correctly (while it’s common for links or embedded resources, values of the itemtype attribute typically don’t get dereferenced). They fail when a different protocol than HTTP/HTTPS is used (for example, file). It’s not just that the link is broken ...

It's a common mistake to think that when you create your own SSL certificate they are self-signed. You can also create your own CA, and sign your certificates with it (yeah, the CA certificate will be self signed too, but so are the "real" CA certificates - every certificate chain is started by the CA certificate, and CA is created from scratch). The main ...

It's important to understand that SSL certificates come in two "flavors": Self-signed - In which case, you generate them entirely on your own with no additional cost. CA-signed - In which case, a recognized certificate authority (Symantec, GeoTrust, GoDaddy, etc) signs the cert. Is this a public facing website? If so, then I'd strongly suggest ...
