Order a SSL certificate for a custom domain name is now possible

Post by The Godfather on February 3rd 2017, 3:41 pm

Dear users,

I am glad to announce you the opening of the phase 2 on Forumotion for the purchase of SSL certificate set up for the forums on our main domains name and having or wanting a custom domain name via Forumotion. Celebrate



Process to purchase SSL certificate set up on those forums is the same.

If you have any problem to pass your forum in HTTPS, don’t hesitate to open a topic in the dedicated support section. Forumotion staff is here to help you is this transition.

 
 Added by APE

For anyone who does not have the SSL certificate section in their admin panel, you have an external domain name linked to the forum via a CNAME and for this reason you can not use SSL option.

Indeed, we can not install an SSL on an external domain that we do not manage.

Please read this tutorial carefully: http://help.forumotion.com/t150650-ssl-certificate-guide-for-a-success-forum-migration-to-https#1038838
if you do have this tool on your ACP and you have a domain outside of forumotion Then please don't try and add the SSL certificate as it will not work.
The SSL certificate will only work for forumotion hosted domain name's.



Regards,
Forumotion staff king

I have a custom domain that works fine with all (https) sites and Forums I visit.
Forumotion appears to be the only server that exhibits the insecure https.// lock, Why is that? Thanks.
I know the problem is being worked on and it will take time to resolve. Are the other sites way ahead with the latest browser security protocol?

You can fix it if you buy the SSL certificate in credits management if you have the option.

A lot of italians have ".forumattivo.it" like original domain, but it isn't in the list of supported domains. Among the supported domains there is " .forumattivo.com" and not "forumattivo.it".

It's more convenient change the original domain or wait for the phase 3?

All other domains not listed will be done in step 3 you have nothing to worry about all domains will be done by the end of the updates.

Forumotion is not the only one.  I am a member of some other forums, not hosted by Forumotion, that does not have secure links.

Today the Security certificate has become active in my forum. But I also have one suggestion. What do you think if there was a possibility that instead SECURE see label of the website,( image below)


What do you think about this proposal?

I purchased my domain before this was being done. So do I still need to pay to have the https:// added onto mine?

Hello every member has to pay for this if they want it it will not be added to your domain unless you pay for it.

The domain name can be purchase before the HTTPS address as always then you purchase the HTTPS address as a separate purchase.

Now if you have purchase the HTTP address then buy a Domain then we need to move your HTTPS address to your new domain.

Also this option only works on domain names purchased through Forumotion.

Will purchasing an SSL certificate allwct the look of a forum?
As in will I need to fiddle about in ACP again, as I just finished reworking the forum toModern BB beta

Hope the answer is, 'Pay for the SSL cert and everything is autiomatically done'. Smile

Oh, and thanks for the advice over the last couple of days, Ape. Much appreciated.

It does not change the appearance of the forum.  It only changes the http in the links to https (secure).  After you purchase the option, you will need to set the options.  After you purchase it, a new page of the options for SSL will appear.

Domain names that you purchase through your Forumotion forum's administration panel will work with the SSL certificate option.

So I presume as I bought mine outside of Forumotion I can not buy the certificate? so does that mean |I can buy it from somewhere else?

Hello @FIB

If you got your domain by some other host you need to call them up and ask them how to get the certificate as we can not help you on it as we have no power over your domain sorry.

They should have the tools to add a certificate for you at a cost.
