The URL https://perlmonks.pairsite.com/ always goes to a server with the "*.pairsite.com" certificate, so does not have certificate issues.

Yes, it's a work around, but once it's bookmarked, your certificate headaches are over.

Also, this is something that only Pair Networks can fix. It is a server configuration issue, not a website issue.

And, please note that Perlmonks.org is being hosted for free. The time employees of Pair Networks spend on supporting the servers that host perlmonks.org is their personal time, which they do not get paid for.

We, the Monks, are getting amazingly good service. Extremely few other hosting companies would be willing to provide even a 10th the level of service that Pair is providing to us - for free.

    The URL https://perlmonks.pairsite.com always goes to a server with the "*.pairsite.com" certificate, so does not have certificate issues.

    For me, connecting this morning to https://perlmonks.pairsite.com/ is failing to avoid the problem, and I get the dreaded "There is a problem with this website’s security certificate" page.
    (Today is the first time I've experienced the problem when connecting to https://perlmonks.pairsite.com, and it's persisting.)

    OTOH, connecting to https://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=3628 is presently working fine - though the security problem with that particular URL has always been intermittent for me.

    Cheers,

        Heh ... it's an ever changing situation. At the moment https://perlmonks.pairsite.com is being instantly recognized by my browser as being unreachable:
        This page can’t be displayed •Make sure the web address https://perlmonks.pairsite.com is correct. •Look for the page with your search engine. •Refresh the page in a few minutes.
        Perhaps that's only a temporary thing.

      See also Corion's post here, this means that currently perlmonks.com should always work, and hopefully they'll get it straightened out so that perlmonks.org and perlmonks.net also work. I'm not sure what'll happen to perlmonks.pairsite.com - at the moment it seems to be having DNS issues.

        So far, https://perlmonks.org has been working for me with no certificate issues.

    We do owe a serious “shout out” to the good folks at Pair, because, as we all know from our $WORK, web-site servers are not free.   They obviously provide excellent, fast hosting, and of course that gets noticed.
