Secure Connection Failed (I've searched the keyword in this forum)

Dear Moonchild,
Thank you for your Pale Moon.
I relies on your product because of my old but precise legacy add-ons.

Today I had a problem with entering my university homepage.
I checked that with other major browsers and there was no problem.
(Firefox 54, Firefox 67, Chrome 73, IE 11)

target: https://www.hanyang.ac.kr/
message:
An error occurred during a connection to www.hanyang.ac.kr. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP)

forum search: in the latest thread, you suggest to update palemoon browser itself. However, I have 28.6.0 64-bit on Windows 7 now. So I have nothing to do with the version.
Can I get some advice from you?
I have never visited the homepage before today, so I can't say when this symptom has started.

Thank you for reading.

Site only supports insecure 3DES and RC4 ciphers. These are disabled in Pale Moon by default.

Thank you for your fast reply, Moonchilld,

The SSL test you attached showed the terrible result.
I will inform an administrator of the website.

Thank you for information.
