In progress New: SSL certificates are now available for EVERY Forumotion Forums

Post by The Godfather on February 8th 2017, 4:20 pm

Dear users,

I am glad to announce you the phase 3 on Forumotion for the purchase of SSL certificate set up. Now, every Forumotion forum without exception can purchase a SSL certificate and switch to HTTPS ! Celebrate

No matter if your forum his hosted on your main domains or not, or if you have a custom domain name or not: you will ALL be able to purchase a SSL certificate and have a secure URL in HTTPS.

Process to purchase a SSL certificate is the same. For more information, read our tutorial.

If you have any issue, don't hesitate to ask on the dedicated support section.


Regards,
Forumotion staff

@The Godfather, how long does the configuration for custom domains take when you buy the SSL certificate?

Is the 500 credit a one time fee for the SSL certificate, or is it yearly like the domain name?

Yearly.

THank you, I think that should be mentioned in the SSL certificate info box. As it seems right now, one would think it's a one time fee.

@APE

So can anybody please help me with this issue?
I often spend credits on the ads and stuff, so I'm really annoyed that I can't buy the most important thing.

to recap:

I am in founders mode.
I have enough credits (1000+)
I am in the right place misc-> spend credits -> I have STORAGE-ADS-DOMAIN-COPYRIGHT
there is no SSL BUTTON.

Also I can see the SSL thing on the summary but that's it.

This is probably just like that classified ads update, as it is restricted to 'big' communities (English, Spanish etc). A bit frustrating though... Rolling Eyes

Hello sorry for the Delay in getting on to this right now i am not sure why your forum is not showing this setting it is open to everyone who has a forum. I see you Tagged all staff members here but tagged The godfather wrong you need to tag him like this
Code:
@"The Godfather"
I will ask @The godfather why some of you have not got your Settings yet and get him to post back or i will do it my self.

@Tonight wrote:This is probably just like that classified ads update, as it is restricted to 'big' communities (English, Spanish etc). A bit frustrating though... Rolling Eyes
All forums should have this setting it should not be just for some i will find out why this is a problem and get back to you all.

Please make sure i have the URL of your forums so i can let the head office know.
if you have a domain name please post it here and the FM domain name aswell.

thank you.

the FM domain is giftcards.cyberfreeforum.com


So do I have to purchase the SSL through FM or through Namecheap?
Because if I need to purchase through namecheap they tell me this:

The next step after purchasing an SSL certificate is activation. In order to do this, you'll first need to have a CSR code generated on your server by your hosting provider.

Typically, a Certificate Signing Request (or CSR) code is generated upon your request by your hosting company for the website you want to secure with an SSL certificate.

However, you may generate a CSR code yourself (or your hosting company may advise you to do so). In which case, select your web server from the list below and follow the instructions.

cPanel
Apache OpenSSL/ModSSL/Nginx/Heroku
WHM 11.48
Tomcat (using keytool)
Plesk 12
IIS 7
IIS 8
IIS 10
DirectAdmin
Exchange 2007 (PowerShell)
AWS
Synology NAS
Vesta CP
Mac OS X
Sun Java System Web Server 7.x
Webmin
Node.js
Exchange 2013 (EAC)
Exchange 2013 (Shell)
Glassfish
Zimbra

To the Members Who Can Not See the Option: Do you have a domain name that you did not purchase through Forumotion? If yes that could be the reason why you do not see the option yet.

Domains purchased outside of the forum will not have that option:



  • 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.
