SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems. It prevents illegal hackers from reading and modifying any information transferred, including personal details.
If SSL is added to your website, it protects your customers when they go to your website and submit any sensitive information such as address, phone number or credit card information.
When SSL is installed, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allow secure connections from web server to a browsers. HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) appears in the URL when a website is secured by an SSL certificate.
In a nutshell, the purpose of having an SSL on your website is to make your 10MF pages secure by changing "http" to "https"
Usually the SSL certificate has to be purchased, but with 10 Minute Funnels we provide them for free, all you need to do is to install the SSL to your custom domain.
Creating an SSL Certificate
1. Add the Custom Domain Name
Before installing your SSL, make sure that your custom domain name is already added to 10 Minute Funnels.
2. Add the SSL
Once the custom domain name is added to your 10 Minute Funnels account and the CNAME Record has been pointed to
target.10minutefunnels.com , you can now add the SSL to your custom domain name.
From the Dashboard, click the [Menu Icon] from the top left corner of the screen to slide out the Main Menu, then choose “Domain Names”
Click the "triple dots" next to the custom domain name and select Secure this Domain (SSL)
In the pop-up window, click Yes, Secure this Domain
If everything works, you should see a success message after.
If it fails, you'll see a message asking you to make sure the CNAME is pointing properly and to try again later when it has fully propagated. Sometimes it can take up to 24 hours to fully propagate, but usually between 1 to 2 hours. If after 24 hours and the SSL is still not working, just let us know so that we can check your set up.
To test if it's working, publish your funnel with the custom domain. When the live pages are accessed, the URLs of the pages should start with https.
