I have received very clear advice from Active Campaign Support as to CNAME forwards:
“right now they do not have https. It is on our roadmap, but it’s not something we can change right now.”
I wrote to them that to me, this is unacceptable (“on our roadmap” = no ETA = nobody know when)
Browser manufacturers have been telling the web for months, if not years, that they will soon stop accepting http pages completely.
SSL is EASY to implement
Insecure Websites (or Browsers TELLING users that they were insecure, altough in fact AcitveCampaign migt just not do their job) will scare of users, B2B users in particular, B2B SAAS buyers specifically. This KILLS business, very simply and very clearly.
Frrom 1+2+3 follows, IMHO, very clearly, that SSL for CNAMEs just HAS TO BE implemented rapidly, not even as a courtesy, but as a maintenance issue. Non-https these days is a SEVERE BUG.
Why AC isn’t doing this is a complete mystery ot me. If anyone on this forum can help me either through explaining TO ME why I might be wrong or TO ACTIVECAMPAIGN why I’m right and that there needs to be more energy on this, I’d be very, very grateful!
