A week or so ago I moved this site from its previous host to NearlyFreeSpeech.net, an outstanding web host in Phoenix that has a very libertarian outlook on free speech. The “nearly” in their name refers to the fact that you need to pay for hosting. There should have been minimal disruption, and all posts, images, comments, etc. have been transferred over with (as far as I can tell) no problems. If you do find any problems, please let me know.
As a result of the move, the site is now available over HTTPS to those who wish to read over a secure connection. All parts of the site, including the RSS feed, are available over a secure connection. In addition, I’m using Public Key Pinning to reduce the possibility of someone spoofing the site when its viewed over a secure connection. Of course, everything will continue to be available over standard, insecure HTTP for the foreseeable future: I’m simply providing more options to those who are interested.
In addition, arizonarifleman.com is now DNSSEC-enabled. If your internet provider or DNS resolver support DNSSEC (Comcast and Google Public DNS, for example, do. Others vary in their support.) then you can be reasonably assured that when you visit this site it’s authentic and not spoofed. If the site is being spoofed (unlikely, I know) and your ISP/DNS resolver supports DNSSEC, for your safety the domain simply won’t resolve. If your ISP or DNS resolver doesn’t support DNSSEC, you’re no worse off than you were before; you simply won’t get the additional assurance that DNSSEC provides.
In short: if you want, you can read the site with a higher assurance of security than you could with most banks. If not, nothing’s changed. I just like geeking out.
