Hi Alexandr,

Excellent points!

As for me the main page of any product is important to make a good first impression. When I open the main page of JanusGraph it looks like the site was constructed in the 90s (sorry for criticism). I understand that the style was taken from TitanDB (http://titan.thinkaurelius.com) but I think it should be changed.

Agreed (I've also gotten this feedback separately); I have a draft in-progress here: https://mbrukman.github.io/janusgraph.org/ and this is being tracked via https://github.com/JanusGraph/janusgraph.org/issues/52
 
Another concern is that the main page uses http protocol still. I do understand that there is nothing to secure on the main page but I believe that https protocol will make a better impression. Notice that docs.janusgraph.org is using https protocol (Letsencrypt certificate). I believe it isn't hard to add an additional SSL certificate for the main page. Also, Letsencrypt supports wildcard certificates, it is possible to make a certificate for the entire *.janusgraph.org domain to cover all subdomains and use the same certificate on the main page and in the docs.

Agreed as well on this point, but ince The Linux Foundation manages the domains and owns the DNS configuration for janusgraph.org, they need to update a certain part of config to enable GitHub to get us an SSL certificate via Let's Encrypt. I've reached out to my contact at The Linux Foundation to make this change but am still waiting to hear back. I'll follow-up on that.

Best,
Misha
