    Hello ctobraces,

    No that is not required. You don't have to have a secure domain. You can use secure embed code of your form to ensure that the data transfer over the internet is secure.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Thank you!

    Hello ctobraces,

    Yes, its possible to show your user that the form is secure. You can enable security certificate seal in your secure form. 

    Here is an example:

    When you open a form with non secure URL this is how it looks: http://form.jotform.co/form/32524108597861?

    But,

    If you open the same form with secure URL, it will display a security seal:  https://secure.jotform.co/form/32524108597861?

    Here is a guide which should help you achieve this:  http://www.jotform.com/help/131-Enabling-Security-Certificate-Seal-on-Secure-Forms

    Do get back to us if you have further questions.

    Thank you!
