I receive the following error message when I attempt to create a payment method to renew my Yola Silver and domain name:

This Connection is Untrusted
You have asked Firefox to connect securely to, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.
Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?
If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Technical Details uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate expired on 2012-05-23 7:59 PM. The current time is 2012-05-23 8:40 PM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)

Please advise what I should do.

Hi Eric,

Looks as if Yola don't pay their bills on-time.

Because it only just expired then it's not likely to be an issue (unless you have been phished to another site impersonating Yola and your security software has identified this).

Check the the url and make sure it's a site or wait for Yola to fix this. I would hope that they wouldn't kill your account in the meantime.

Yes, it's where the error pop-up occurs after clicking on the "Add payment method" button

I tried everything the support site suggested: Java, Flash, cookies, etc - no change.

Googling, I found a post from a few years back whose identical problem was solved by a Yola tech as a "real" tech website issue they fixed - and they gave the client a free hosting extension as a good will gesture for reporting it...

I have an online education website with Yola and need to get the following info:
"An explanation of your technology plan, including security measures, to ensure both quality standards and integrity and validity of information. (e.g., password protection, encryption, back-up systems, and firewalls) (XIII, C:B)"

Can you help me with this?
