    Hi,

    When you are using secure forms (e.g. https://secure.jotform.com/form/13384851563), your clients should be able to see a security indicator on their browser and secure information of the link. However, if you have embedded this secure form and you do not have the SSL certificate installed on your domain, no security indicator will be shown.

      

     (Secure Information using Google Chrome Browser)

     

    Also, we just implemented a new feature which is a Security Seal for secure forms. To add security seal in your form, please Add an Image Tool under Power Tools, then select Security Certificate Seal.

     

    Let us know if you have further questions with regards to this. Thank you for using JotForm!

    My new web host doesn't have the ability to provide SSL. (Weebly) How should I set up this reservation page? My old webmaster went belly up so I am on my own! 

     

    Thanks!

    When you include secure form into your site data will be transmitted securely, so you don't need to worry about it, but your clients will not see any security notification in the URL Bar.

    If you want to show SLL Certificate on URL bar, you should also enable HTTPS on your site but if you can't have that, you may give your secure forms direct link to your clients (e.g. https://secure.jotform.com/form/13384851563) this way, they should view the security indicators.

    Thanks,
