We’ve added PNG and SVG badges!
Badges are small images (either PNG or SVG) that are dynamically generated to include status information about a particular endpoint. For example, a website that is passing all checks would produce a badge that includes the endpoint name with a visibly green background color. Alternatively, endpoints that are not passing all of their checks or can’t be checked for some reason would show red, orange, or grey colors.
If you’re using sslhound.com to monitor an open source project or website with a README, these can be embedded directly into the markdown:
The image renders from the “/badge.png” suffix of the endpoint’s publicly viewable status page. In the above example, that status page is https://www.sslhound.com/v/www.sslhound.com.
<a href="https://www.sslhound.com/v/medium.com"><img src="https://www.sslhound.com/v/medium.com/badge.png" alt="medium.com status"/></a>
The above example would produce the same output if simple HTML was used.
Alternatively, SVG XML can be used and is arguably better than embedding the PNG image. To get SVG, change the extension from “png” to “svg”. Depending on server settings, the X-Frame-Options response may need to be set to display images correctly.
X-Frame-Options: allow-from https://www.sslhound.com/

This release was code named Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog. From Wikipedia:
The Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog is a rare dog breed from Alapaha, Georgia.According to anecdotal reports, the breed may have been developed as early as the 1800s in the Alapaha River region of Georgia for the purpose of recreating the extinct plantation dog breed. It is believed that the Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog descended from the Old English Bulldog and was developed as a family and property guard dog. It was added to the Working dog category in 1986 by a privately owned breed registry called the American Research Foundation; however, pedigrees, registrations and other necessary breeding information is unverifiable. Dog owners filed complaints against the now defunct registry.
