help.dukgo.com SSL Certificate Revoked

Whilst browsing the help pages to get a reference guide for !bangs, I came across an SSL certificate error by Firefox. The certificate used for help.duckgo.com is out of date by around 5 days. It is a good idea to update this so others don't encounter this error. I am running Firefox in hard-fail mode as a security precaution, so others may not be alerted (https://www.grc.com/revocation.htm). I have attached an image for reference. This error may be replicated by visiting any page on help.duckgo.com. Thanks!

Hello , this is a known issue and most likely will not be updated, since we migrated from dukgo.com to duck.co domain.
dukgo.com is now just a 302 redirection page and SSL cert is not effective anymore.
http://help.dukgo.com/ -> https://duck.co/help/

Thanks for notice!

Well, is a new SSL certificate that expensive? I don't think it'll make a good look to newcomers when they visit a sub page of DDG and see this SSL warning, even if the page is not used for new stuff. If it is only a redirect, why don't you remove the HTTPS support for that page completely?

Which page has the link you clicked on? We'd like to update it to the correct (working) link.
