New : SSL certificates are now available for Forumotion forums + Possibility to run forums in HTTPS

Post by The Godfather on January 16th 2017, 4:11 pm

Dear users,

As we announced few time ago, Google has decided to accelerate the transition to a more secure web by imposing the HTTPS standard. In order to allow your forums to follow this evolution, Forumotion has the pleasure to announce the setting up of a new option on its forums. You have now the possibility of passing your Forumotion forum in HTTPS. In addition to offering a secure web space to your members, your forum will display a "Secured" label on web browsers. Cool

However, note that this option is still in Beta. Its evolution as well as its availability on the whole Forumotion service will be done in a progressive way.

How to get secured HTTPS url in my forum ?


In order to be able to place your forum in HTTPS, Forumotion has add a new option allowing the founder to order the installation and configuration of an SSL certificate on his forum. This is done from the administration panel> Misc > Spend credits> SSL Certificate:


The cost of installing and configuring the SSL certificate on the forum is 500 credits for a 12 month renewable period.

Note that passing your forum in HTTPS requires that all external resources (images, JavaScripts, CSS, ...) to be called in HTTPS. Otherwise, the forum will not be considered as secure by browsers.

What are the conditions for my forum to switch to HTTPS?


Please note that giving Forumotion forums the possibility to order the installation and configuration of an SSL certificate is still in Beta version especially since it's a complex operation to be implemented technically on major services like Forumotion. Therefore, in order to guarantee the smooth functioning of this transition, the availability will be gradual :

  • Phase 1: Transition to HTTPS will be possible only for forums located on the main Forumotion domains with a basic url without a custom domain name.
    SEE THE LIST OF CONCERNED MAJOR DOMAIN NAMES:
    actieforum.com
    ahlamontada.com
    foroactivo.com
    forosactivos.net
    forum2x2.ru
    forumactif.com
    forumactif.fr
    forumactif.org
    forumattivo.com
    forumeiros.com
    forumgratuit.org
    forumgratuit.ro
    forumieren.com
    forumotion.co.uk
    forumotion.com
    forumotion.net
    forumpro.fr
    forumvi.com
    hungarianforum.com
    superforum.fr
    yoo7.com
  • Phase 2: Transition to HTTPS will be possible for forums located on the main Forumotion domains and having a custom domain name acquired via Forumotion.
  • Phase 3: Transition to HTTPS will be possible for all other forums.

Also note that once HTTPS is enabled on the forum, the "SSL Certificate" option disappears from the admin panel. Because the SSL certificate is closely related to the forum url on which it was installed and configured, the administrator will not be able to modify the forum url as long as the SSL certificate is valid. If necessary, the administrator can make a request to revoke his SSL certificate directly on the support forum.

This restrictive behavior is only adopted during the Beta phase of the SSL project. It will then evolve into greater flexibility once the process is thoroughly honed.

Hoping that this new option will brings you full satisfaction!

See you soon with other news on Forumotion

Regards

The Godfather

Phase 1: Transition to HTTPS will be possible only for forums located on the main Forumotion domains with a basic url without a custom domain name.

so for the moment all custom domains are not allowed only basic url are supported. when it will be opened to personal domain names, the SSL activation process will be the same.

I do not know if everyone understands this or not, but your forum will not be completely secure if your images, third-party links, etc. does not have a secure link, too. I just visited a forum, and noticed that my browser shows that the forum is not completely secure because of images.
