I’m pleased to announce that War Machines RTS now supports HTTPS.
The web has evolved considerably since War Machines RTS first started, and in the modern world it’s becoming increasingly important to secure our data and communications. To help achieve this, websites across the internet are adopting HTTPS. HTTPS builds on top of HTTP, the communication protocol of the web, by encrypting the data sent between your computer and the server that the website runs on. Practically speaking, this means that sensitive details like your forum password (or your private messages) can’t be read or altered by potential eavesdroppers as they travel across the net.
HTTPS is currently an optional feature. You can start using it today by visiting https://www.warmachinesrts.com/, but existing links, bookmarks and references in your browser history will still point to the plain old HTTP version. Look for the padlock in your browser’s address bar to see whether HTTPS is enabled.
Once we’re sure that everything is running smoothly, we’ll move over to HTTPS by default, so you’ll always have a secure connection.
