SSL Support for Polls

Posted by

We now have full SSL support for our poll widgets as an option in our Pro and Corporate accounts. Due to the extra server load involved in serving widgets this way, it will not be available in the free account. To embed your polls on a secure web page just look our for the check box in the poll embed dialog. This is also available for survey embeds.

Upgrade your account today to access this great feature.

  1. The information submitted is sent via https if SSL is enabled for the poll.

  2. Hi, I'm doing something similar. I'm using the direct link that is generated by Polldaddy. Does this mean that whilst I can change http to https and show the poll over SSL, the information submitted when the user hits "submit" is sent over plain http? And the only way to ensure that the input form and details submitted are sent securely is to use the embedded version? Thanks in advance.

  3. You will need to use the HTTPS version of the embed code - just change the http to https.

  4. Hi Polldaddy. We have a pro account, and often collect names or emails in our surveys. If I want to direct link to the survey from our site, as we can't embed in our CMS, is this only secure if we add Https:// to the front (not included in the link you offer to direct link cut and paste) ? If so, when someone then clicks submit, is the data, including the name/email, they have given transferred securely to your system and protected under SSL? Ta

  5. Hi Nabeel, There are some activities that need to take place first to make SSL available for ratings. These activities are on our list, but are not planned to be complete for the foreseeable future.

  6. Thank you but one of your colleagues (Eoin) wrote this regarding an SSL @ ratings comment. "Thank you for the suggestion, this is in the pipeline."

  7. Hi Nabeel, We don't have any plans to add SSL support for ratings in the foreseeable future.

  8. It has been quite a while and there is still no support for SSL with the ratings. We are planning to use the ratings in our Intranet and it generates an IE security message (the standard non-secure content message when http is referenced in an https site). We are a large corporate client of yours and we'd really like to know when the SSL for ratings is going to go live as we need to communicate this to our project managers as they outline the project scope. Thanks

  9. No, it is only surveys that available on mapped domains, not polls.

  10. Does this work with the "Map your domain to Polldaddy.com" feature? If so, does this require an EV certificate? I don't understand x.509 well enough to know if the browser would be expecting a certificate for *.example.com or *.polldaddy.com. Any insight you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks.
