    You have to purchase and use an SSL certificate that has been signed by a certificate authority and install it to the server. If you use a self-signed certificate, browsers will show what you're seeing. Since it can be host/server specific, You should contact your host regarding how to go about adding an SSL certificate.

  3. If you know about SSL/TLS, certificates and are the admin for your web domain, I enthusiastically recommend StartSSL. The free SSL certs they offer are recognized by almost all browsers.

    Oh, and did I mention the free part?

    which browser to use while installing http://www.startssl.com/ ?

    Can you please explain to me how to install please

  5. It's a little complicated. In order to use StartSSL I've used Firefox since at this time the administration does not support Chrome.

    Install Firefox and walk through the Validation wizards and you should be on your way to get validated and ready to request free certs.

    The caveat is that the certs for your domain needs to be authorized by someone registered for that domain.

    In your case, the domain is "goansinreading.tk" and unless you are the registered contact via email for that domain, you'll get stuck.
