    The SSL (Site Security Licence) for yourable.com expired on 20th July 2018 at 14:43. (Someone forgot to renew it?)

    I emailed admin about it when I noticed about 16:30, but as they don't work weekends then it will probably be Monday before it gets sorted.

    Lack of a current SSL for any website causes the major browsers IE, Edge, Firefox, Chrome, etc. to block access to the site.

    It's a security feature of most modern browsers.

    If you trust the site then on the blocking page there will be an option to 'Continue to site', or similar, which makes an exception for that particular site and overrides the block.
    If you don't see 'Continue to site' in your particular browser then click on 'More information' and it should be there.

    If you use this override then once the site has a valid certificate again you should go into your browsers' Options/Settings and remove the exception.

    You can also totally turn off this certificate checking for ALL websites in your browsers Options/Settings - this is not recommended.

    Nothing to do with me, DLF/youreable have to get their SSL renewed.

    Luckily the company that they use (told you I'm good at searching for stuff) can issue and enable a 'standard' SSL in 5 minutes.

    So once someone with the authority gets into work, sees what has happened, and 'puts some money in the meter', the browsers should soon stop blocking the domain/website again.

    Yes I was the same Completely Blocked. I went into my settings and tweaked them and got back in.

    Don't forget to remove the security exceptions that you set.

    You'll usually find them somewhere like - Options(or settings) > Security > Certificates.
