Secure sites and pages: about SSL & HTTPS

Last Updated

We secure all pages on our servers by default, and fully support SSL and HTTPS protocols. Whether you use your account's Leadpages Domain on lpages.co or connect your own domain, your pages and sites are secure.

How it works

We use a third-party service to automatically obtain a browser-trusted certificate to secure each landing page and site published to a domain connected to your Leadpages account.

This process is always automatic—you don’t have to take care of any extra setup. If you’d like to learn more, we use Let’s Encrypt. You can get technical details on their website ↗

What happens when your sites and pages are securely hosted? Well, a few things:

  • all URLs will begin with https://
  • data that visitors submit through forms (including Checkouts) is secure
  • browsers will indicate that your page or site is secure

Essentially, your visitors will be able to trust their information is secure when they visit.

How to keep your page or site secure

While we take care of securing your page or site through HTTPS, you’ll need to make sure you don’t include HTTP content on them. The only time you’ll run into this risk is if you include custom HTML on your page or site (such as an embedded video or third-party form tool).

When including HTML, make sure the content is being served over HTTPS. You can usually tell by looking for a src attribute in your HTML. It should link to a URL that begins with https://, for instance:

<iframe src=https://videohost.org/xlk39"></iframe>

Sometimes, content may be secure but you won’t see https:// in your HTML. That’s okay—just be sure to test your page or site and make sure you don’t see any “mixed content” warnings in your browser.

Frequently asked questions

 

Are pages published to WordPress or as HTML secure?

It depends on your server. If your site is secure (whether on WordPress or another platform), any landing pages you publish there should also be secure.

If your site is secure but it continues to show that it is not, check to make sure the htaccess file of your WordPress site is not preventing your site from being listed as secure.
