I get a security warning when logging into my hosting control panel

When I try to login to my hosting control panel I get a security warning in my browser.

Mozilla Firefox says "This Connection is Untrusted", Internet Explorer says "There is a problem with this website's security certificate" and Safari says "This Connection is Not Private".

Why do I get this security warning?

This is because as an additional security measure for your protection, we will only allow connections to your hosting control panel if you use a secure connection. This keeps all the information between your PC and our server (such as usernames and passwords) encrypted and secure.

The reason for the warning is that you are connecting to your domain name but we are protecting that connection with OUR server SSL certificate. Therefore the domains will not match and the browser will issue a warning.

This is perfectly normal and you can save this as an exception in your browser.
