What happens, when you "Add Exception…"?
Can you add an exception?

No I can't add an exception.

I can't access the main site "" from germany. "No Route to host". "" which is just a few steps away is accessable. Possibly "" has anti DDOS meshures in place?

There had been an issue on the server which hosts

It required a full power-down-cycle to get it running again (after we tried to reboot the server via software yesterday).

Some more details can be found at, a deeper root-cause-analysis will be done later the day and published there.

(Small note: This issue has nothing to do with certificate issues on
