Scott interesting one this, if CC put an ssl certificate on the s drive, could we all have https

After all I personally will not fill in a form on a site with more than my name, and email address unless it has got the https;

Many years ago a TV watchdog program even made an issue of telling internet users, not to enter name + address + email address unless its was https:

Is this whatKimberly is referring to ?

Yes, we do have plans to offer https on S-Drive. Interesting though about what you said about forms. You know that most forms deliver content over unsecured email, so even if the information was collected over SSL, it is still delivered as plain text. ;)

Scott like everyone else I now understand that the ssl scaremongers are :lol: but as they are out there, and especially new internet users listening to what they say, have now made me remove requesting anything from a contact form other than a first name and email address.

Bit like no point moaning i have no customers when i have put scammer across my homepage

Still amazes me fore instance that i regularly get orders from my SCCP shop for £500.00 + when I swore blind at the outset when a friend of mine suggested i set up an internet shop, that know one in their right might would buy gold jewellery off a total stranger over cyberspace.

So the last thing i want to do is put them off

SSL asap please

Scott is right. The connection to your PC and the server might be secure, but the server sends the email out as plain text, which travels through many hops on it's way to the destination server. It really is pointless.

This topic just became important to me.

I have a SSL purchased from and for a GoDaddy hosted account. I just CNamed (lack of better term) my hosting over to my S-Drive. Now when I type https://www.domain_name.com I get the red-screen (Chrome) and a nasty note about some warez hacker community called CoffeeCup ; )

What's the work around for this one ?

I have some merchant account stuff in the works (and existing) that will probably require the SSL certificate.

Thanks.

Hi, sorry if there is another thread on this one but I couldn't easily find it.

So, what was the answer on hosting your form with an SSL? IE: https:owndomain.com?

Not withstanding the merits (or not) of having one, perception might mean some people won't use our hosted form if they perceive it to be unsecured

Any help gratefully received.

We do not provide SSL services on S-Drive at this time. It really doesn't make much sense to access a form over HTTPS because the email will still be delivered over standard email protocols which are unsecured.

Hi Scott. Fair point. However, as some of the above posts state, a lot of https is about arm-waving and perception (for the end user) rather than real life security threats.

Also, I think we're able to turn off the email notification aren't we? Meaning that we can go and get the form contents from the HTTPS secure admin login area (CSV download). Frankly this is where I would get the data from and I'm not so interested in having it emailed to me.

So, I guess I'm surprised there's no way to make the form secure, using some sort of coffeecup wildcard SSL certificate maybe.

I too am interested in making the form builder contact form as secure as possible using the S-drive. I currently am using this on a new site for a client and am pleased with the form and the fact that updates/upgrades are available. In fact, I just purchased the captcha v2 upgrade which the client likes.

I understand the form can be placed on my server but I lose the CC support.

Is the best way to embed the form on the new site and have a SSL certificate on the site?

Hi Ken,
You don't lose support for the form builder just because you placed it on your own server. CC supports all of it's apps fully when they are used in accordance to their requirements.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
