SSL for custom domains

We are pleased to announce the rollout of custom domain SSL for all dotmailer users

That means over 10,000 of your domains are now secured with SSL – immediately, without any setup or cost to you.

Think of it as a late Christmas present that you didn’t know you wanted. It may not be shiny and full of novelty, but it’s practical and useful. Like a shed. Who wouldn’t be delighted receiving a shed for Christmas?

Previously in dotmailer you had a choice between either a secure dotmailer branded domain or an unsecured domain of your own. With this update, we are closing the loop on data security and leading the way on best practice. Your contacts get both the brand recognition of your own domain and the security benefits of SSL.

Google says no to non-SSL

The change to SSL everywhere matters. People are increasingly aware of the ‘padlock’ icon in their browser, to the extent that it is expected any time someone is asked to submit their data to a website. Google agrees and recently blogged about their proposed changes to how Chrome will flag non-SSL websites in the future.

SSL domains in dotmailer

This dotmailer update affects all uses of your custom domains and sub-domains, such that they can now be secure wherever you use them. That means: email links, unsubscribe pages, ‘forward to a friend’ pages, landing pages, surveys, signup forms, preference centers, etc.

If you’ve not yet purchased a custom domain, you can do so now by contacting your Account Manager.
