    What SSL Company does JOTFORM use for their SSL forms?

    Asked by inetsatellite on October 13, 2010 at 10:56 PM

    What SSL Companydoes JOTFORM use for their SSL?

     

    I need to be able to accept credit card numbers and Social Security Numbers with my jot form on my non Secure website.

    I know that using a https JOTFORM that my clients information will be safe.  Although they need to know it is safe.  What image can I put on my site that will show that the form is on  a secure site?

     

    Please review my forms that are embedded into my site.

    We use a 256-bit Godaddy SSL Certificate. Here is what they say about the security in their FAQ:

    What Is the Encryption Strength of Your SSL Certificates? All of our SSL certificates support high-grade 256-bit encryption.

    The actual encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by the user's browser and the server that the website resides on. For example, the combination of a Firefox browser and an Apache Web server normally enables up to 256-bit AES encryption with our SSL certificates. This means that depending on the Web browser and Web server that combine to establish the secure connection through one of our SSL certificates, the encryption strength of the secure connection may be 40, 56, 128, or 256 bit.

    Is this suppose to be an answer? As it does not address the question at all I think not. I will paraphrase  the question "How can I show my customers the little 'lock' symbol of an SSL transaction on my checkout page using jot form?"...Reply in simple English please

    You were asking which company we were using for SSL certificates. My answer was for that. 

    Sorry, I see now that you have a second question. If you do not have an SSL certificate you will need to the form like this from your site:

    so can we place the godaddy SSL cert logo on our form page?

    If we put an SSL certificate on certain pages of our site where the form was embeded...would that effect the form?

    I'm not clear on your question. If you get an SSL certificate for your web site, you can place your secure JotForm form inside these and both the form page and the submission will be secure.

    can we use the go daddy logo on the jot form to show to customers that data will be sent secure (if correctly set up)?

    @a1mirrorsltd

    It is possible to use the logo but the real question is if it's allowed by GoDaddy. That I am not sure but you can always contact them regarding that.

    You can use the image field under the Power Tools section to insert an image (such as the Godaddy logo) in your forms.

    great, thank you. i think that clears up what people are asking in earlier posts. Therefore the conclusion is you can use the logo, but it whether GoDaddy approve because the certificate is for JotForm and not for each individual website. Just to be sure... to enable the data to be transmitted securely, you must have https://www.jotform.com/..................
