Hear It Nation Now a Fully Secured Site


1/12/17 UPDATE:

Why is your browser giving you a ‘mixed content’ warning?

Mixed content warnings indicate that something on the webpage isn’t being served via https. There are 2 kinds of mixed content warnings:

  1. Mixed passive/display content
  2. Mixed active content

Mixed active content means that some type of script is being served from an unsecured (http) location. This is potentially dangerous, and something to watch out for. Mixed passive content, on the other hand, means the site is loading things like images and audio files over an http connection. This type of content doesn’t diminish the security of the page like active content does.

Right now, your browser is telling you that Hear It Nation has ‘mixed passive/display content’. This is because our SHOUTcast served broadcast is delivered via http.

We’re workin’ on it. Anyone with the technical know-how to fix this, please let us know. We could really use your help.

Your personal online security is important to us, so we decided to enhance our security.

Hear It Nation now uses SSL encryption, a privacy standard trusted by millions of people around the globe. Here’s a great explanation of SSL from Verisign.

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, a global standard security technology that enables encrypted communication between a web browser and a web server. It is utilized by millions1 of online businesses and individuals to decrease the risk of sensitive information (e.g., credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, emails, etc.) from being stolen or tampered with by hackers and identity thieves. In essence, SSL allows for a private “conversation” just between the two intended parties.

If you happen to visit our old http site, we’ll go ahead and serve you the new https [secure] version anyway. We got your back like that.
