    Will the form be SSL secured if it is embedded on SSL website?

    Asked by Cathy on April 24, 2017 at 03:59 AM

    As SSL is not supported if we use own domain, I would like to ask if my website is SSL encrypted and I create a sub-domain for the form, will the form then be SSL encrypted because my website is encrypted?

     

    Thanks.

    I would say that that is not a good practice and your form with not be submitted with SSL. The SSL protocol provides encryption and authentication services, but if a form is not SSL-protected, the site can't be authenticated until after the data has been sent.

    Hi Nik thanks for your reply. So the best practice would be the Form uses JotForm's domain with SSL encrypted and embedded into our own website (also SSL encrypted), then we send out the link of our webpage to user. In this case the form are secured right?
