    I am curious to know if SSL protects domain names. If yes, how does it protect?:roll:

    SSL encrypts the flow of data, not the domain NAME per se.

    SSL doesn't protect you. SSL will simply encrypt data transfer between 2 end points but there's nothing to ensure that the endpoints are secure that is down to your system design.

    Perhaps you're confusing SSL with DNSsec, some of the same principles shared between them.

    Perhaps you are confusing SSL with a SPAMMING MOFO

    Nick cracked it - see posts passim. I got suckered in to two threads. See OP's post history.

    Perhaps a bit suspect or maybe a language issue? I can't see how anything is being hawked or backlinked. What do you reckon, Nyams?

    I did, still don't understand where the spammy links are though.

    Edit: Actually the 'homepage' link does look quite suspect.
