Enabling SSL or HTTPS on your landing pages

Does Instapage Support SSL?

Yes! all our users can take advantage of our SSL certification for all of their domains and pages. You don't need to buy an SSL certificate - we will generate and install one for you.

SSL/HTTPS checklist

Secure pages are not allowed to contain insecure content. Because of this, it is necessary to go through these steps to ensure that your page is fully secured and that browsers will not prevent users from accessing your page:

1. All links on your page point to https URLs (https://) or schemaless URLs (//), including your redirect links on your forms or buttons.

2. Any custom code under Settings - JavaScript, Settings - HTML/CSS, or in HTML widget boxes on your page only point to https URLs (https://) or schemaless URLs (//).

What do I need to do to have SSL on my landing pages?

A. If you are publishing to a custom domain that you haven't used with Instapage before - simply follow the publishing process and make sure your CNAME record is pointing to secure.pageserve.co. To learn more about how to publish your page, follow this article

B. If you are publishing to a custom domain that is already connected to your Instapage account, you will have to go into your registrar and edit your CNAME record to reflect the secure Page Server. This means that your old CNAME record needs to point now to secure.pageserve.co. After you do this, you will have to send our support team a quick email at help@instapage.com so they can enable SSL for you. This is not needed if you are adding a new domain to Instapage, only if you are editing an existing CNAME record.

C. Free SSL only applies for pages published through CNAME. If the page is published with WordPress or Drupal, the SSL must be sourced from their end.

D.  If you have a CAA record added to your domain, you will need to add an additional CAA record for letsencrypt.org in order for us to be able to apply an SSL certificate to your newly created subdomain. This is not necessary if you don't have an existing CAA record already.

That's it!

Note that the SSL certificate cannot be activated for more than 50 subdomains of the same domain in a 7-day time frame.

NOTE: The certificate can take up to 24 hours to activate. If you see a message saying "Pending..." note that it is not an error, you just need to wait for the certificate to be active.
