Subject topic say it all. This should be TOP priority, as user password may be compromised. Please do this as soon as you can.

Indeed - if *anyone* has re-used a password for this website then you should immediately change the password on the *other* websites (as that password is no longer secure).

first step is to identify the DNS name that these forums will use, as the certificate will be tied to that.  Is the plan for me to move forums.nxtcrypto.org over to this IP, and change these forums software to be this name, or do we use something else?

I know people like to use other names, but really, the migration from the site that adminius abandoned will be much easier if we reuse the DNS name, as then users will just be automatically redirected to the new site.  So consider that.

For me that clinched it!

forums.nxtcrypto.org can be redirected as well to a new domain, should we decide on another. But the decision needs to come fast. Within the next 24 hours most likely.

whoever is the domain owner of whatever domain we decide to use, I can generate a CSR for them to give to a CA such as rapidssl/comodo/etc for the CA to sign and return a cert we can load into the unix system.  Is the domain owner prepared to pay for this cert?

I really wish te infra committe would have given funds for a wildcard cert for nxtcrypto, this would be so much easier and then we could also protect wiki, VPSs, etc

we shouldn't use too many different domain names. subdomains are the way to go.

True, but "nxtcrypto" is too nerdy.

Too bad nxt.org's owner is too greedy and wanted 1 million nxt for the domain (as I remember)

I thought "we" own the nxt.org domain? I would propose nxt.org as the main entrance point, and using forums.nxt.org (and a *.nxt.org wildcard certificate)

Ok,  I looked it up. Someone owns it

https://nextcoin.org/index.php/topic,4065.0.html

but I remember he asked 1 million nxt for it a few months ago.

I won't trust that guy. What if he changes his mind again and wants to sell again for million nxt?

nxt.org is out of the question.

I wrote a stakeholder to get this domain. Let's see how this works out, for now I won't expect it.

I wanted to do the nxt.org website, but had RL issues. After all this I won't trust the owner anymore. In 1y with 100k monthly visits he may sell the domain..

Exactly. If someone like jean luk owns the domain, that would be different. We don't know what the owner is going to do in six months

I reconsidered and am for nxtforum.org.
It's much better for new people to remember than a subdomain.

Also, farl4bit/web is a reasonable person.
