This is a hostmaster error, not a user error.

There are two problems. One (the cert/hostname mismatch) is absolutely a hostmaster error. The other (monk pic link is http only) is a site content problem (call it a "webmaster error" if you want to be all 2nd millennium about it). They both need solving (by different people).

Why doesn't Pair have a cert?

They do - see https://perlmonks.pairsite.com/

There's a quick and simple fix for the cert/hostname mismatch and that is to have the DNS maintainer remove 209.197.123.153 from the list of A records for www.perlmonks.org and perlmonks.org. That will put extra strain on the other servers but that's almost certainly a better (temporary) situation than exists at present.

Who manages the DNS?

    Feels a bit like "hair splitting". But I'll concede. I probably should have added DNSmaster, as well. :-)

    I also only wanted to add; that, given that this is largely a volunteer effort; that the cost and time to get && implement certs is free, and small respectively. No complaint, or finger pointing intended.

    My main point was only to indicate that it shouldn't be the users responsibility to overcome the problem (browser, DNS, ...).

    +1.

    As long as 209.197.123.153 serves a certificate not matching the dns name perlmonks.org, I would request for its corresponding A record for perlmonks.org to be removed.

    If there is something one can do to help the site, please let us know. At least i would be happy to contribute in some way.
