    Thats a error stating that the certificate is expired error. Certificates verify the identity of a web site so phishing sites don't impersonate them. Not sure why you are getting it and nobody else is.

    Easy to replicate - just put https:// in front of the usual URL.
    The certificate issued by the website is a self signed certificate, and the Root certificate matching it will not be in the Trusted Root CA store on your computer.
    Some browsers a more lax when it comes to security than others, which is why IE ignores the issue.

    What happens when you just use http:// instead of https:// ?

    This was a pain in the ass while I was traveling in Canada recently going hotspot to hotspot. I use a VPN to secure my connection but it was definitely a speed bump to getting connected.

    Nothing wrong with Chrome, it's 100% the certificate on the site. The type of cert used was never meant to be used for a public website.
    Don't use https:// in the URL, and you will not get the error. If you go to http://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co.nz/ and still get the error, sing out. I'll PM you the details on how to clear the HSTS token from Chrome..

    @quentin Hey mate, I've tried dropping the "s" off the start and it wont load full stop. If you could please give me a pointer to clear that HSTS thingy that would be great.
    Cheers

    @Timmay try this:

    Type this into the address bar of your chrome browser: chrome://net-internals/#hsts
    Type nzhuntingandshooting.co.nz into the "delete domain" field, and hit the delete button.
    This should do it.
    Try accessing the nzhuntingandshooting site using http://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co.nz

    Very strange.
    I deleted all my browsing history, cookies all the check box's basically in Chrome. Closed it and went back to the site (typed it in manually) hit enter and my computer turned off!!
    Turned it back on and now I can get here all happy and fine... Not sure wtf that was.
