It's a 301 redirect. I use namecheap/cPanel. I will have to create new redirects to the https when that's available, right?

I've been an owner/manager since 2010. Currently I own one rental cottage that I manage from A to Z. I'm also the onsite manager for two other properties with absentee owners who handle their own marketing and bookings.

RE: Can my old reviews be recovered?
I recently had a need to access something in an old VRBO account that’s been inactive for over 3 years. It took some thinking to remember my old password, but the entire listing is still there. Reviews and every inquiry I ever received (names only, because they hide all the contact info now).
Looming SSL issue – What to do?
The topic of security certificates has come up in the past with the answer being, it’s not urgent—yet.
Well, Google just announced on their blog that when Chrome 68 comes out in July, all non–https web sites will be labeled “Not Secure” in red text. Mozilla and Microsoft will follow suit by end of 2018. Up to this point, the security warning has been subtle and only on pages asking for password or CC info.
Things have changed since I last looked into SSL and opted not to pay $100 for it. Now Symantec is out, other options are available (including free “self–certification,” whatever that means), and I certainly can’t have my owner website labeled “Not Secure” when the big OTA’s are already warning guests from booking direct!
How do I get certified? Not through DNS registrar because my site is hosted on MyVR server (I think) ergo I can’t install it myself either. Must it be renewed every 90 days and is there a way to automate that? Do I need separate certificates for additional domains directing to my site?
RE: Where do returned emails go?
I did extensive testing when I set up my site. Put myself as bcc on outgoing emails to see what they looked like. I noticed that if the email was delivered and I opened my copy, the check mark would appear. So don't do that if you're trying to track when it's read by guest.
RE: Email regarding HomeAway subscription prices changing tomorrow
I did, it's legit and I am grateful to the team for sending it. My (non-integrated) HomeAway listing expired a month ago and I never got the email concerning their rate hike, 10% match-back charge, etc. This has moved up my decision about relisting to 10am EST tomorrow. Thanks guys!
RE: Search Engine
Hi Tristan, that page-level CSS tab is not present on single-property template. If I want to include custom CSS on one page, I have to add it to the layout as an HTML block. Not ideal because if the HTML block contains only a few lines of code and no text or other element, it's invisible on the layout until you 'mouse-over' the right spot. I try to always put it at the very top so I remember where to look for it, but custom settings should really be more obvious (and preferably in the <HEAD> section).
RE: Booking Process Special Requests
I sure would like a check box for that other Suitability category: Disabled. It's a significant fraction of our clientele, but different disabilities require different preparations on our part. Would be nice to know this at the time of inquiry so we can ask about the guest's needs. I put in a request for this back in the fall. Do you keep those forever, or should I resubmit?
