    Hello Rifqi,

    thanks for your interest in JotForm.

    To answer your questions:

    SSL submissions are for secure communications between the client (i.e the end user of your form) & our servers. These communications are encrypted and are useful if any of your forms contain sensitive information such as credit card, payment or data of a personal nature.. You get 10 of these a month with Free accounts.  Forms making use of this feature will begin with https:// 

    If you exceed the total submissions allowed in a particular month; the form will be disabled until the first day of the following month.

    Does that answer your question? If anything remains unclear, just lets us know.
