SSL for Vanity Domains Now Available

SSL for Vanity Domains is now available for all our customers! You may have heard recently that a secure web is here to stay, and that more sites will get a “Not Secure” warning. The good news is that you can now use your own domain with https for your Pardot landing pages and forms. Not sure where to start?

Requesting an SSL certificate for your vanity domain is easy to set up in your Admin console:

  • Go to the Administration > Domain Management page
  • In the Tracker Domains table, click on the Actions gear icon for your selected vanity domain
  • Click the Enable SSL action

You can perform this action for any of your custom vanity domains with a validation status of Validated.  Your site will get a certificate from Let’s Encrypt, a trusted certificate authority. It will be ready within 10 to 15 minutes. This is confirmed when your SSL Status changes from Processing to Enabled. At this point, you should be able to access your marketing content on your vanity domain over HTTPS. For FAQs on adding SSL to your landing pages, see this article.

  • Will this SSL setup also implement a wildcard redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for your vanity domain?

    • Hi George – We do not put a redirect in place by default, but there is one available. When you are ready to have it turned on for your domain, contact support and we will take care of it!

  • Hi Heather,

    Quick question – you don’t mention in your blog that after enabling https and the certificate is done, users need to click on settings again to choose “Default to https” – is this not a “must” to ensure that the tracker URL will be https?

    Many thanks,

  • Hi Claudia,

    Moving to https:// as default is not required in order for you to be able to access your URLs over https, which is a good and useful step for many to take while they’re still upgrading their content. If you want for Pardot to write links in emails as https:// and see the https:// links on pages like your landing page read screen, you do need to change your domain to https:// by default.
