Problem with certificate or server?

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=www.magickitchen.com&hideResults=on  - this report shows several problems, and in each case, it starts: "This server is..."

So is the problem with the security on the server or with the certificate?  I don't manage the server. It's with rackspace, and we have a developer who works on it.

My take is that we need to get on the server and add some protocols and update others. But I'm not sure, and just want some clarification. Thanks.

It appears the problem is not with the certificate itself, but in the way the operating system handles the encrypted data.  So yes, this is a server issue and therefore for Rackspace to handle if you don't own the OS.

He also has certificates that are problematic as Symantec is one of the CA's in the chain. Symantec has lost their status as a trusted root ca due to some irregularities in their issuance policies. Symantec's CA properties were purchased by Digicert that has a replacement policy in force.
