    How do I host on Jotform Pro vs. embedding on my own site?

    Asked by rebirthesl on November 20, 2013 at 05:03 PM

    My current JotFormPro form is here: http://rebirthesl.org/sign-up-for-eft/

    The problem is some people are not completing the form b/c they believe it is not secure. There is no https or padlock that they are used to seeing for secure transactions. 


    https://www.jotformpro.com/cogreenville/eft-sign-up is an example of what I would like to do. How do I do this? I only see embed options assocaited with my form builder. 

    Thank you,

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    First off, it seems your domain does not support https (SSL), you have to have this if you want a secure connection on your server. This enables you to see a secure indicator (security lock) on any browsers. The embedded secure form itself can't help since it just relies on your domain. 

    If security is a concern, you have two options.

    1. Purchase an SSL support on your domain name provider.

    2. Share the secure form URL directly without embedding it to your non-https page. You should be able to see a secure indicator on any browser. https://secure.jotform.com/23374208712147

    Let us know if you have further questions. Thank you!
