Google Warnings

In case you have received an email from Google with a subject of an alert in your Webmaster Tools dashboard that your site’s security certificate could not be found, this means your site was inadvertently added as a secure site.

An example of the message you may have received:

Dear Webmaster,
The host name of your site, https://example.com, does not match any of the “Subject Names” in your SSL certificate [….]
This will cause many web browsers to block users from accessing your site, or to display a security warning message when your site is accessed.
To correct this problem, please get a new SSL certificate by a Certificate Authority (CA) with a “Subject Name” or “Subject Alternative DNS Names” that matches your host name.
