Recently i notice a visit on my WHMCS Livechat which showed it was referred from clients@zirconhosting.com, strange never heard of them and that seems to be a WHMCS clientarea

on checking this as you will see from the below link, they are trying to use my sites EV SSL certificate

contacted them, but so far they have not replied, so contacted their own host and got this

Hello

I'm not sure I'm really understanding this.

I can't stop people from misforming URLs. If someone wants to try using SSL
on a domain that doesn't have SSL... I have no idea why they would expect
that to work. But I can't stop them from doing that. The website won't
work, because there's no SSL for that domain name... so, again I don't know
why they would do that. But I can't stop them from doing it.

none really unless their next step is to try and hack into the site to get the keys, but it looks like someone tried to access their client area, got that message and clicked the link to our site, which shows a visit through our WHMCS live chat otherwise i would never knew about this.
