Click the Advanced or Add Exception link to accept the warning and proceed to the unsafe page.
A security dialog box will open.
Enter the username and password credentials into the box, as found in Statistics.
Click Sign in or Enter.
Why is there a warning?
HostJane cannot configure an SSL certificate (HTTPS://) for an IP address on its own. We need to wait until your domain is pointing to the server, and then assign your FREE SSL certificate to your domain.
Until your domain's A-record is setup, whenever you access your server by HTTPS://, a warning appears in your browser.
Your server comes with a self-signed SSL certificate.
If you access the server link using HTTP://, you will not see the warning.
C. How to remove the SSL warning
Once your domain's A-record is successfully pointing to your server, HostJane can install your FREE SSL certificate to remove the warning.
Please note that we can only install an SSL certificate on a top-level domain (TLD)
For example: TLD could be .com, .net, .org, .ca, or any TLD available.where the
HostJane and our servers work with all domain registrars worldwide.
