This conversation is no longer open for comments or replies and is no longer visible to community members. The community moderator provided the following reason for archiving: This workaround is no longer relevant, this specific issue has been resolved.

We are aware of an issue with our site statistic program for Sitebuilder Plus. You will get a warning/error that says the connection is not private. We do have a resolution for this, it will just take some time to write it into the code. In the meantime, you can manually apply this fix by adjusting the URL that the statistics tool brings you to.

When you click on "View Stats", it will redirect you to a webpage and the address bar will display a URL that starts like this:

https://v8.prnx.net/VisitsPerDay.asp?

You just need to make two small adjustments. Change the first "v" to a "t" and add "v8/" after the ".net/" part of the URL. It should look like this:

https://t8.prnx.net/v8/VisitsPerDay.asp?

DO NOT COPY THIS EXAMPLE. This is just to demonstrate what the beginning of your address bar should look like once you've successfully made the changes.

Making these changes will bring the stat tracker up and functioning for you. You will also see the stats from the past week that you have not been able to see the stats. No data has been lost.

This is by no means a permanent fix we expect you to do from now on, but until we are able to get this written into the code, this is a workaround to still be able to use your stats.

The other suggestion I will give is to use either Google Analytics to track your site stats (this is one of the best programs out there for this) or consider rebuilding your site in our newer builder, Website Builder. Not only will you have a better quality builder to create your website on, but it will be mobile friendly, responsive, and provide a free SSL. The statistics for this builder is also a more updated program. If you have any questions regarding how to get started in this builder, I would be happy to assist you.

I've tested this on your account and if you follow these instructions, you will be able to see your stats. I recommend giving it one more try. Just two changes, and the beginning of the URL should match the example I gave above. If you are having trouble with this, you can certainly call in to support and have them help walk you through this.
I'm sorry, but we do not credit for inconvenience. We credit for paid services that are not functional. We are working on fixing this permanently on our end, it will just take time. In the meantime, we have provided a workaround for those that need to see their stats. It is still working and all stats are still being tracked so no data has been lost, you just need to make two changes to the URL.
Other options include using a service like Google Analytics to track your site visitors (this is one of the best site tracking programs available and can be connected to your Sitebuilder Plus site) or rebuilding your site in our newer builder, which is a more updated program and will provided a better quality stat tracker.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Receiving Warning Message whenever I access 'View Stats.' Is this legit?.

For the past several weeks, every time I sign into Website Manager and select 'View Stats,' I receive the the message to follow. I'm still able to see my stats but to do so, I have to click on a series of links provided in the warning. Is this legit? This occurs whether I use my Lenovo Thinkpad PC or my Mac:

THE MESSAGE:This server could not prove that it is v8.prnx.net; its security certificate is from t8.prnx.net. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection. Proceed to v8.prnx.net (unsafe)

Mine says that there have been no visitors in 7 days and I think that is accurate, because I cannot access my two website domains that I pay for annually - which means my clients cannot access it either. Hope my problem is not different than the others and there isn't a deeper problem.

Linda,

Your sites are on a status called clienthold. For more information on this domain status and how to fix this, please refer to this article:

C'mon homestead... Pick up the pace... This cannot be that difficult to figure out.   Everyone on this thread should get some kind of refund.  And why should any of us have to rebuild our sites just to get stats?   My site has about 12 years of development or more...If I have to rebuild my many sites, I will move over to Godaddy or some other hosting site.  Because you are talking about years of work.   Fix this and quickly.

As I mentioned in the article above, we have found the source of the issue. At this point, it is a matter of rewriting the code to include this resolution. As you can imagine, this is not a simple task as there is a LOT of code that goes into the builder, the stat tracker program, and everything else on Homestead. Code is not something you can rush with, as the smallest error can cause more problems than there were to begin with. So, in the meantime, we have provided you a way to apply this fix individually.
We are not saying you HAVE to rebuild your site, it is merely a suggestion since the newer builder is more updated, responsive, has a mobile builder, free SSL, and a better stats tracker. If you were willing and able to rebuild your site, that would be great. If not, that is fine. You can use the workaround until we get this permanently resolved or use Google Analytics.
We will not be providing refunds for this issue, since the program is actually still working and we have provided you a way to see this data. All stats are still being tracked so no data has been lost, you just need to make two changes to the URL.

Please make sure you are following the instructions and making the corrections in the URL that appears when you click "View Stats" from your account. If you don't do this, and you just paste in the example URL from the article, you will be asked for this information because you are not logged in through your account and the URL doesn't have any site specific information. The example I provided above is only the beginning of what the URL will look like.

OK, those websites are helpful.

Regarding the monthly fee, I suppose I thought I had originally paid $7.99 because I was just looking around for info on WB and found this page, which says "Free for the first 30 days, $7.99/mo thereafter. No commitment, cancel any time."

https://www.homestead.com/create-a-website#.XORO9JXkNbU

So, is WB cheaper than SiteBuilderPlus?  I don't understand why I'm currently paying more.

Also, I suppose the only way I'll know how difficult it is to work with WB is to try building a site.  Let's say I spend some time doing that, and then determine it's not worth the time and effort.  In that case, could I avoid any charges for WB?  How would I do that?

You are paying more than that because that package does not include a domain. A domain is $2/month. WB does not cost anything additional. The only reason you would have to pay more is because the package you are on only includes one website; however, we did give you 2 free sites to try WebsiteBuilder. So, again, no charges to avoid.

Well, at this point I don't know how to move forward on WB.  I'd probably be unintentionally creating a third website there if I even tried to take the first step.

But, to be clear, I need and want just one website.  So, I could keep my current site while building a new site on WB, and then make the switch and my monthly fee would be reduced to $7.99?

Or, if I give up on WB before completing the site, I could just stop the construction and continue using my current site for $9.99, without additional charge?

And, if you don't mind, how do I find these two WB sites you say I have?  Do they have URLs?

Nothing you do on WebsiteBuilder is going to reduce or change your billing.
To access those sites, log into your Homestead account, click on Websites Manager, and choose one of the .homesteadcloud.com sites from the drop down menu. The site name is always going to end in .homesteadcloud.com, until you point a domain to it.
Then, click "Choose Design"
You can start building and if you rebuild your site, you can switch your domain over to point to the new site.
You can view helpful Youtube tutorial articles to walk you through the builder:

This is sad.  For every question I ask, you give an ambiguous answer.  When I ask for clarification, you give another ambiguous answer.  If your intention is to frustrate me, congratulations, you've succeeded.

And, by the way, I have a B.A. in Communication Arts and decades of professional experience, so I know it's not me.

Please, please don't respond.  If you do I'll delete it.  Stop, and go away.
