So in conclusion, an explanation of the differences of the secure connection between the site provided at 'ID: 39460457' is caused by when the certificates were originally purchased?

Is that an accurate assumption?
Dave Baldwin

Good enough I suppose.  There is no requirement for them to all be the same, even if they were all purchased today.

Thank you all.

One last question. Why does expert-exchange have a secure connection when placing a question (We found this curious since placing a question seams a none security breach).

You are correct.  Just typed in google.com and saw the secure connection "https://www.google.hn/".  Always thought it was non-secure.  And always thought that if a site had a secure connection, that security would have been a cost transfer to the customer.  Now we are more confused on why some sites are secured when, at laymen view, it seems unnecessary.

So this means that my connection to google is always encrypted?

Actually, for now is no building.  Is more on knowledge.  We did place a question.  It would be great if you can followup on it:
