    How does secure URL and SSL submission works

    Asked by blackboxtie on July 02, 2014 at 09:21 AM

    Can you please explain in further detail what this means:

    "The closest you can get to the actual form appearing on your unsecured page would be an image of the said form. This is different than an embedded form which can be completed and submitted from your page even though the form doesn't actually reside there."

    My page is not secured but I would like to include a secured form on there without having to link to the form.  I do not want to link only to the form because it loses my website headers and navigation.  Is there a workaround for this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance

    That answer was meant for the specific client.

    Let me tell you that in general, form data will be securely sent if you use the SSL version of the form in a non secure website.

    This means that the form won't be in a secure zone, but if someone fill out your form and sent it to Jotform servers, it will be secured. (our submission servers are also protected with SSL.)

    It would be advisable to use either the iFrame version or the Embed version, rather than the source code, though.
