New: SSL certificates are now available for EVERY Forumotion Forums

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

First topic message reminder :

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

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.

Hello,

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

Thank's

Hello, I have a question. My domain name is currently a .forumotion one.
If I purchase a SSL certificate now for my .forumotion site will it still work, if at a later date I purchase a custom domain from an external provider? The forum would still be managed by forumotion, just have a external domain name which points to the forumotion one.

For external domains, even if it is redirected with CNAME, SSL certificates do not work only for domains purchased in the forum, but you can buy a certificate on the server where you are normally hosted.

If your profile is correct, your forum is secure. I get the secure lock icon in my browser.

Thats why. We can't install an ssl certificate (https) on a domain name we dont own or control. We can only install https and ssl certificates on domain names bought through our service and that are controlled by our service.

Yes i can confirm That if you buy a domain name outside of FM then you have to buy the ssl certificate from them not us.

Now the problem is you have asked us to host your ssl certificate and we have took the money from your account.

now im not sure we can re credit your account but i will give @The godfather a tag in this and see what he can do as I know that the domain is not our domain.
