We are trying to configure SSL encryption. This can cause a short-term server malfunction. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Update
Nikolay has successfully configured SSL encryption for this project. Now, the most valuable communications are secured.

The emails are also SSL-encrypted. Those who previously had problems receiving emails from the project (password recovery, etc.) will now be able to receive them. Just don't forget to check the spam folder.

Awesome and thank you , we need to get a Gridcoin vote back up to Whitelist your project now that you have SSL enabled!! Soon as we get a vote setup it would be nice to add a blurb about it on your boinc projects home page for news. Again thank you , and you took care of that very fast! Cant wait to see the future of this project!

As https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/index.html states SSL3 and weak ciphers (especially RC4) should be disabled.

Apart from that, it seems that the icon xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/img/head_20.png and avatar pics from user profiles xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/user_profile/images/ are sent via unencrypted connection by default, although encryption works fine when I manually load the picture's url.

It is a cool propject and from what I see in the forum, you help/support the users quickly. I appreciate that.

Thanks! I redirected the SSL3 issue to Nikolay, because it was he who set up the SSL encryption. I hope, he will fix this.
Regarding the avatars and icons, the goal was to protect only the valuable communications, so we followed this instruction: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/SecureHttp.
