A while back, we universally changed all of the web addresses (url) for UC ANR websites to “ucanr.edu" to better reflect who we are in the University of California system and to eliminate confusion between ANR and UC Davis.
The security settings on many web browsers will alert the user when the underlying “certificate” or base registration of a website does not match the domain name in the url for the website. In the case of the ANR online catalog, the “certificate” for the catalog website is in the domain name “ucdavis.edu” but the published url for the catalog is anrcatalog.ucanr.edu. The anrcatalog.ucanr.edu url “points” to the anrcatalog.ucdavis.edu website for most pages except the secure pages where you logs into your account and place orders. If you enters our catalog website using the ucanr.edu address, then move into a secure area by logging into your account or making a purchase, the alert is triggered.
