    Need to embed a SSL form on a non-SSL secured website. Will the form still be secured though?

    Asked by benklempner on October 10, 2011 at 02:54 AM

    Hi Everyone,


    Heres my situation: I am trying to collect sensitive information through my website using JotForms. I know that it is possible to receive secure submissions using JotForm, however I do not want to forward visitors to my form on JotForm.com/user/formname. I need to embed the form so that the visitor never leaves my site. The problem is that my provider (WIX) will not allow me to add an SSL certificate to my website because they dont support SSL. So, if I embed a secured jotform form, will the information still be securely submitted AND more importantly, how can the visitor know the info is being submitted securely?

    Dear Benklempner,

    If you get the source code of your form and put it to your non-secure page, it won't be in secure zone anymore but if someone fill up your form and sent it to Jotform servers, it will be secured. (our submission servers are also protected with SSL.)

    This is not a recommended way of using SSL forms, because your visitor will see it's non-secured form until they submit it. If your hosting provider doesn't support SSL, you can still buy SSL certificate and setup a sub-domain for only use on SSL with another hosting provider. 

    Kindest Regards,
