Invalid SSL certificate

So you're aware, the SSL certificate for www.fsarchiver.org seems to be invalid. Everytime I open it, Firefox warns me that the site name does not match the certificate site name (which seems to be 240plan.ovh.net). I have to make a security exception for the site in order to get past this. Doesn't really matter since this isn't a financial site, but it may convince some visitors that this site is a forgery, since that is what Firefox claims. I have noted this behavior for several months.

I know that,but it would cost a fortune to buy a true certificate and a compatible host, and the self signed certificate does its jobs even if these warnings are really annoying.
