Total Motorcycle 18.0: The next BIG thing coming - Preview

Just when you thought I was done with the site upgrade and changes with Total Motorcycle 17.4, I am pleased to announce "The next BIG thing" project is already coming down the line!

That's to change the new site from HTTP to a secure HTTPS site!

You can see I've been working on that here:

https://www.totalmotorcycle.com/
index.php


With a secure site, your information and the site is behind a SSL certificate and encrypted as well! It's very complex, but just let me say, I am putting your privacy and security at the highest level I possibly can.

My goal is to launch all the SSL HTTPS pages before October!

The HTTPS algorithms I am using will work with our HTTP URL's, so you won't have to change your bookmarks (etc) it will automatically redirect you to the new HTTPS pages. (but you should update them to the new URL).

Thank you for making Total Motorcycle your virtual riding destination!

Mike

UPDATE: Screen shots from the Total Motorcycle computer. We have URL's secure and working!

When viewing our new SSL secure site: https://www.totalmotorcycle.com/ you will see a "Pad Lock" in the URL address bar, this mean the site is 100% encrypted secure and independently verified. Clicking on it will read something like:

COMODO SECUREtm
has identified the site
www.totalmotorcycle.com

the connection to the server is encrypted.


If you don't get a Pad Lock or see the message, no worries, you are on a secure site.
