    there are 2 links that show up at at or close to the top of your search engine when you search Moes Performance. One starts with http or www only which is NOT a secure link. It IS a link to the legitimate site I believe, as I had initially created an account and added an item to cart and it shows up there and at the secure link as well, but the httpS link is the safe link especially to make sure your payments are secure. Shopping using any website link that doesn't have the https in front is not a good idea.

    This does not mean Moe's Performance is not a good or safe vendor. It simply is likely that at some point the company that administers their website switched them to a secure https protocol from the old http or www protocol and for some reason the old still exists.

    If I had clicked on the logo that is on this site it would have taken me directly to the correct secure https. You'll also see the links even look a bit different otherwise.

    (Unsecure links were common practice before ecommerce and secure logins became a big thing)

    Secure:

    https://www.moes-performance.com/

    Unsecure:

    http://www.moesperformance.com/


    i'm hoping that Moe's can do something about getting rid of the insecure link and I encourage people to shop from this excellent preferred vendor.

    Actually, it's the same site. It's just the underlying web engine is accepting connections on port 80 (http) and port 443 (https). What most sites/providers have done these days is to have the http link automatically switch over to the https one as soon as you hit it. They just don't seem to have done that or possibly a change unintentionally broke the mechanism. Older sites used to only switch when you went to check out.
