SSL Certificate Check
2012/03/28 2 Comments
An SSL certificate is an important part of serving up secure websites. It puts the ‘S’ in HTTPS and gives your visitors that warm fuzzy feeling when they see that padlock in their browsers. But those SSL certificates don’t last forever. Most have to be renewed every 1-3 years and should you forget and let that certificate expire, your visitors will be met with an ugly “This Site is Untrusted‘ message instead of your great content. Let NodePing keep an eye on your SSL certificates with our new SSL check available today.
Monitoring your SSL certificate with NodePing will allow you to receive notifications if the certificates is nearing its expiration, is replaced with an invalid certificate, or if your webserver is incorrectly serving it. You can also configure how many days in advance of expiration you’d like to receive the notification, giving you time to renew and install a new certificate without interruption.
The new SSL check is just one more link in your comprehensive server monitoring chain. NodePing is happy to keep an eye on your SSL certificates. If you don’t have an account yet, sign up for a free 15 day trial at http://nodeping.com.
