When will DigitalOcean update it’s SSL Certificate?

I think DO should update their SSL settings.

I mean this

this one.,

when using Chrome. It’s about SHA1 Deprecation.

Could you be more specific about what’s wrong with the current certificate?

All DO certificates are looking good to me https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=digitalocean.com

Ahh - you’re absolutely right - they’re still using SHA1 . Interesting indeed! The only reasonable explanation I can think of is that newer algorithms are not supported by older systems. Since DO is a low budget provider I’d speculate a fair amount of their customers still use old systems. Yes, they could run 2 certificates for old and new browsers but that doesn’t work on nginx afaik. Also DO is now on cloudflare - no idea how that complicates things. Either way they still have time until January 2017 to find a solution before Google goes bezerk on them.

Speaking of Google and Chrome in particular (since you seem to be concerned about security) First rule on the internet: never use any google products - never ever - period

Since there is no substitute for the quality of google search results (speaking after months of painfull experiences using DuckDuckGo and similiar crappy engines) you can use https://startpage.com
