    Hello Domain Check,

    Thank you for contributing your “Domain Check” plugin.

    1) – How many days ahead will we receive a notification concerning the expiration or availability of a domain name ?

    ===================

    1b) – Does this require a CRON Job to execute the notifications concerning the expiration or availability of a domain name ?

    If yes, what would be the CRON string for C-Panel ?

    ===================

    2) – Is there a way for us to change the amount of days ahead that we get alerted ?

    If yes, where in the code can we make the modification ?

    ==================

    3) – With the “SSL Checks” I noticed that it says “Secure” even if the website does not have the SSL activated / implemented on the website.

    What does the “SSL Checks” function look for ?

      – Availability of SSL on the server?

      – Or is it the actual implementation onto the website ?

    ==================

    Thanks in advance.

    Look forward to your reply.

    Pigo3934blog,

    Hello! Thank you for using Domain Check! šŸ™‚

    1a) Watched domains will begin alerting via email 28 days in advance of expiration.

    1b) The cron functions use the standard WordPress wp-cron which fires automatically for a traditional WordPress installation. Domain Check uses the “daily” time period, available in the WP documentation. If you have made changes to your WordPress installation to manually run your wp-cron using CPanel to set a cron job Domain Check will still function like normal during the wp-cron run. Domain Check does not require additional cron jobs.

    2) Unfortunately at the moment there is no way to edit the time period for alerts šŸ™ More control over the alert emails, alert process, and alert time periods are commonly requested features and are definitely on the roadmap.

    3) That is not normal. The SSL check tests show that the SSL checks are working correctly. If you able to reply here or send an email to info [at] domaincheckplugin.com with the specific domains and subdomains you are SSL checking that may help locate any specific issues.

    The SSL check function attempts to open an SSL connection, fetches the SSL certificate from the server for the specified subdomain, and parses the SSL certificate to make sure it is valid and has not expired. The SSL certificate may be valid but SSL may or may not be “implemented” on the specified subdomain depending on what you consider “SSL implementation”. A website may have a valid SSL certificate implemented but may not use their SSL implementation via redirecting users to HTTPS, loading assets from HTTPS endpoints, etc. Domain Check *does not* check if a subdomain is redirecting users to SSL, loading secure assets, etc. Domain Check only checks availability, validity, and expiry of SSL certificates for subdomains.

    Feel free to reply if you have any questions!

    If you like Domain Check and use it for your business please consider donating! It takes a lot of time & effort to build, maintain, and support the plugin. Donations are spent on coffee & pizza šŸ™‚
