    9 Below are the fingerprints of our shared hosting servers. Please check your "Primary host" (by logging into our [https://members.mayfirst.org Members control panel]) and match up your primary host with the proper fingerprint.

Then, you will only be warned if the fingerprint changes for some reason.
