If you can do it, it is a hack. So the answer is "no you can't".

No, but you would be able to turn off warnings. Warning are there to warn the user. It's like turning of a anti-virus program: you don't get any information when you do that, but........

It's up to the user if they want those warnings, it's not up to the website. Simple as that.

Can you imagine your internet settings being changed without you knowing it when you surf a site? If IE or any of the browser out there allow this to happen, then no one will be using that browser.

in other words.  It can not be done.  If it coul it would be a huge security risk to every browser on the planet in use by people like you and I surfing the internet.

The only way you could do it, is by manipulating the clients registry to suppress the message, which again, cannot be done as it poses a huge security threat

whether you have good intentions or not.  It cannot be done.

Unless you have access to all of your clients machines, in order to change there registry to supress the message.

There is a reason why it cannot be done, and the reasons are stated above.  If they made the browsers capable of doing that, what would stop me changing your start up items, or your swap file, or deleting entries.  

It simply CANNOT be done.

You will have to buy SSL certs for all of the domains.  I believe certain hosts offer shared SSL  (mine does...http://www.apollointernet.com)

in the interest of fairness, I believe that sybe should get the full marks, since he answered the question.  All hongjun and I did was elaborate on an already answered issue

personally I don't think it fair of hongjun to be able to give himself a grade/points  (kinda shows a littel favortism)
