SSL's for custom domains

    Yes, SmugMug needs to make this a priority because it's a priority with your users. There's a reason why you offer custom domains, and there's a reason why we pay extra to use them. It was suggested in an earlier post that we could resolve the SEO and other issues by NOT using a custom domain and having SmugMug as part of our URL. To me, that's not a professional presentation and I'm not about to put that on my business card or anywhere else.

    Here's a link to another discussion on this same subject, stretching back to 2014. SmugMug's response at that time was "We're working on it. Stay tuned!" Three years later, we're still staying tuned ...

    Definitely no secret that SmugMug does take a fair while to release features that we've been promised. :/

    Though when something is released, it's pretty much bulletproof. So we can't fault them there. <3

    Back in October 2016 I mentioned that we had launched on SSL for non-custom domains and that we wanted to get to custom domains as well. Here on DGrin I've been a little more descriptive and mentioned that we have a number of items that are out-of-our-hands that we're pushing as hard as we can to get in place so that we can support it. It's something we'd love to have, but very few services have been able to figure out. SquareSpace, for example, offers it, but none of the links to your photos use the custom domain, it uses their own CDN URL, which you all have told us you hate. So we're going to do it in a way that you love. It's one of our top priorities to accomplish but I don't have any estimate on when we'll be able to launch it.

    Yes, you're right -- SmugMug works to make sure everything operates smoothly. That's a BIG plus in their favor.

    I appreciate your response. And I appreciate the fact that you're working to launch the feature in a way that we'll love. Thanks for listening.

    Would it be rude to ask: Has your CDN actually committed they WILL do it, just not when?

    It's on their roadmap, yes.

    That's reassuring; thanks.

    Since this has no ETA (which I fully understand), can there be an opt in where users can manage their own cert? even if that involves some effort on our end. This is becoming a usability issue now, as more and more networks downgrading unsecured sites and popular browsers flagging them off (chrome already shows a exclamation mark in the address bar). If the ideal solution is hard to pull off in a reasonable amount of time, it may be worthwhile to think of more practical solutions

    When we launch it for all of you, it wouldn't be an opt-in. Everyone would get it. Until then, you can set it up on your own even today. Several of you have already figured it out (though I don't know the exact steps). Someone a little more familiar might be able to chime in with how to do it.

    Any chance that you could post instructions on how to do this now?

    I can see if our Ops team can provide instructions ... or if you give us just a few more weeks it might be automatically done for you o:)

    Hi Aaron, I'm also interested in this if possible! I've got it half working on my custom domain (see my recent thread) but having a few issues! Tom

    I was wondering if there was a time frame. of course "might" and "few" leave some wonder left, but good to hear encouraging words.

    I would love instructions on how to do this as well as I've been waiting for over 2 years for this and all I keep being told is "give us more time", "its coming soon" etc.

    At this point, I would advise against doing this, as it will delay our ability to get you onto SSL for Custom Domains when we launch it (we're getting closer! I know, I know, you want dates, but we want to make sure it's in tip-top shape before moving all of your domains to https).
