MountainViews now using secure website.
Context of comment:MountainViews has changed from being "http://mountainviews.ie" to "https://mountainviews.ie"

When you access it you should now see a closed lock symbol or similar beside the URL in your browser.

This means that communications between you and MountainViews are encrypted. There has been a move for some years on the part of the tech companies to move towards encryption particularly in the light of criminal scams and intrusive governmental surveillance.

Their encouragement towards website owners has included dropping the ranking of non-secured websites in search results and issuing dire warnings on login pages etc.

For independent and original websites such as MountainViews this represents quite a bit of work. However this work is now done and the website is encrypted.
Message:In future in links to MountainViews please refer to it as:

https://mountainviews.ie

If you don't, the system will still handle your request through a redirect, however this slows your access down and causes more work for the website.
Additional points:As always when code changes are made there are likely to be errors. In the case of this one, look out for pages that don't load or odd error messages. Let us know at admin at mountainviews.ie
