Support for SSL certificates?

We'd like our https Donate page to keep our actual domain name in the URL, rather than switching to

Is this possible?

Update 11/21/17
Today, we started the process of upgrading all existing websites with custom domains to full site SSL so that every page on your site is encrypted. This process should be complete by the end of January and - beginning February 1st, 2018 - all new custom domains will automatically have SSL enabled. 

As long as your custom domain is properly configured, you don’t need to do anything! This upgrade will be seamless, free, and any links on the internet to the non-SSL pages will automatically redirect. 



Update 11/01/17

We are actively working on a solution to bring SSL to all customers. We do not have a date when this will be complete but we will update here as we know more about timeline and implementation. 

Update 8/17/2017

You may have received an email from Google regarding marking your NationBuilder site as not secure when users are entering their information on forms in the future. Google is addressing the issue of web security with a goal of making the entire internet more secure and this is among their first steps.

We are aware of this change and do plan to update sites in the future, however we unfortunately cannot give a timeline at this moment.

Update 4/4/2017 (from Ben Handzo) 

Our goal is to provide SSL certificates to all customers on custom domains as part of their plans. Currently anyone using a {slug} url does have SSL across their whole site.

The cost to NationBuilder is not in the acquisition of individual SSL certificates, it's in the hosting of those many certificates in a way that also protects customers from DDOS attacks, and makes their websites' content fast to access across the globe. We are working with our partners to find a solution and will keep folks updated as we make progress. 

Currently we're able to offer SSL certificates for custom domains as an enterprise addon. If you'd like SSL for your custom domain please contact your Enterprise Account Manager or call 1-213-394-4623 to have a conversation with an enterprise sales person.



Complete and current information on how to use NationBuilder is available in the documentation section.
