That argues for https everywhere, but for the problems with the PKI
including corrupt CAs, too many CAs to trust, the cost of certs, and the
problems with self-signed certs and CAs. Some of those might someday
be solved by DANE. https://encrypted.google.com/search?q=dane+pki

For almost 10 years the official DCC site has been dcc-servers.net. The
machines that have answered to dcc-servers.net have had >10 times the
available bandwidth as www.rhyolite.com. But the overwhelming majority
of hyperlinks about DCC point to rhyolite.com. Such is life.
