Security Warning on www.*.taxdome.com (Don't Worry, It’s False)
If you see a security warning from your browser when accessing TaxDome – it’s false. Your data with TaxDome is safe and protected behind bank level security. We’ll explain below.
You’ll never see this error on firmname.taxdome.com (i.e. in an address without www), because we use security certificates on all Firm URLs to protect your data. However, these security certificates can not work when users access www.firmname.taxdome.comdue to technical limitations of how security certificates work on the web. This issue is not TaxDome specific. When trying to access other sites with www following a subdomain you’ll get similar errors:
- https://domain.wordpress.com = no errors
- https://www.domain.wordpress.com = SSL error
In general, using www in your URLs is deprecated. Technically, www is a subdomain that once used to indicate that a site is part of the web (i.e. not FTP, Telnet, or E-mail). Today, you can safely omit www. All sites work just fine without it (moreover, some won’t work with www – try http://www.finance.google.com/ or https://www.m.facebook.com/).
