Dear members,

Google Webmaster Tools sent an alert email for me: Self signed SSL/TLS certificate

To: Webmaster of https://www.mapleflorist.com.my/

Google has detected that the SSL/TLS certificate used on https://www.mapleflorist.com.my/ is self-signed, which means that it was issued by your server rather than by a Certificate Authority. Because only Certificate Authorities are considered trusted sources for SSL/TLS certificates, your certificate cannot be trusted by most of the browsers. In addition, a self-signed certificate means that your content is not authenticated, it can be modified, and your user’s data or browsing behavior can be intercepted by a third-party. As a result, many web browsers will block users by displaying a security warning message when your site is accessed. This is done to protect users’ browsing behavior from being intercepted by a third party, which can happen on sites that are not secure.

i have contact my hosting company, they replied me "This should be detect by last time your SSL was no renew.", For now should be no more problem.
but i still received the warn email. im using the following Self signed SSL certificate.

Comodo SSL Certificate & HTTPS

DO i need to change the SSL certificate issued by a valid Certificate Authority?

If you are using a cPanel server/host, you can generate a free SSL using AutoSSL. This will be either Comodo or LetsEncrypt. This is the recommended way for this type of hosting plan.

Then you need to enforce SSL everywhere. You can do this with htaccess but there will still be errors and http stuff trying to generate (like links/menus/media). We have 2 modules that can help solve this forced SSL once your certificate is live:
