secure connection
I manage a non-profit web site consisting of a large database, mostly pdf files, and an html home page which lists the links to the base files.
The site was built with a now obsolete program. But I can add, from time to time, some new documents and links, using the same old program.
AWStats reports this year a traffic of ~600 daily visitors, but I feel a reduction of visits number in the last months. Therefore I checked the status of the site by entering the URL into the Google slot of my PC and received a page saying
"This site canít provide a secure connection uses an unsupported protocol."
Please advise Ė what happens and what can be done.

Well if thats all you have on your site you dont need HTTPS . Google is trying to scare people and force them all to SSL when its not really needed.......

Its hard though when they make thier browsers not allow them to goto a site just because it isnt HTTPS,thats taking control away from the user and thats not good.....

Good luck :)

You can just use a free SSL like the one by Let's Encrypt.
