    Hi I am new to jotform, and have a question as to what constitutes an SSL form versus just a form?

    How would I know the difference?

    Hi Jmagana,

    SSL forms are forms that are sent over the internet via HTTPS rather than regular HTTP, which means that there is encryption between the browser and the server.  You can make any JotForm form be SSL encrypted just by changing the adderss that you use to access it.  So, where a regular form address might be something like

    http://www.jotform.com/SomeUser/123467

    you can connect to that form via SSL by changing http to https, like so

    https://www.jotform.com/SomeUser/123467

    Thanks,

    Daniel
