We have removed support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 from our servers with immediate effect (16:00, 26th March 2020). This has been done to enhance the security of our services and is accordance with best practices as outlined in IETF RFC 7525. TLS 1.0 and 1.1 have known security issues and there are no fixes or patches available.

If you are using a certificate based on either of these protocols, you must update them with a TLS 1.2+ certificate immediately. If you are, or wish to be, PCI-DSS compliant, you should adopt TLS 1.2+.

Most mainstream web browsers will cease support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.2 in the first half of 2020. Approximate deadlines are:

  • Microsoft IE & Edge - first half of 2020
  • Mozilla Firefox - March 2020
  • Safari/WebKit - March 2020
  • Google Chrome - January 2020

Most web browsers will issue a security warning if you attempt to connect to a website using either TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1. To ensure you receive the best possible protection, we advise you to upgrade your web browser to the latest version. Most web browsers will do this automatically.

Let's Encrypt / SSLForFree Certificates

All free certificates generated through our hosting control panel since the beginning of March have been TLS 1.2+.

In light of the developing situation surrounding the outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-19, we want to keep you updated regarding measures we are taking to ensure we can continue to deliver our products and services.

We aim to continue to operate as business as usual wherever possible. The only change we are making is that we will no longer undertake any site visits.

If you are experiencing difficulties in paying for products and services please contact us as soon as possible so we can work with you to make things easier.

If an issue should arise, we ask for your patience and understanding whilst it is resolved. Where a service is delivered through a supplier, we are already in contact to discuss and accommodate any changes they may be implementing.

These are exceptional and unprecedented times. Please heed the official government advice at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/. We ask everyone to show kindness and support to one another.

Take care and best wishes to all.

Alexander John

Director, Calzada Media Limited
