SA:MP finally got a HTTPS certificate?
#1

Is it just me or did the SA-MP forums / wiki just get a HTTPS certificate?

Try browsing with;
https://forum.sa-mp.com/

https://sampwiki.blast.hk/wiki/Main_Page

And FYI I know I didn't manually enter it with HTTPS on the wiki, and I don't think I've ever seen it before...

It's a CloudfFare's certificate.

Well, I believe Cloudflare was recently added after the forums went down so I guess that make's sense.

I like it, even though theres no critical information here that would need special protection. Its kind of "good manner" to support SSL access, especially on big websites like this.

Yeah hopefully the site address can be changed to use HTTPS so we don't have to manually enter it when we want to use it(which should be all the time, anyways).

It's probably the free thing from CloudFlare.

What's the meaning of HTTPS? Better security for the website?

Yes. Traffic from and to the webserver is encrypted so it can't be hijacked by someone (so called man-in-the-middle attack). Most websites don't need it. It is mostly used for pages that acquire or display sensitive information, such as login pages.

Still better than nothing and to be honest it's just better website practice to have a HTTPS certificate.

I've noticed that they installed CloudFlare network on the forums like one month ago. It seems the staff finally managed to install the SSL certificate too. Good job guys!
