With web security becoming an increasingly important trend, and browsers including Google Chrome clearly flagging mixed content to users, one of the most frequent feature requests for Pardot was enabling SSL for Pardot vanity URLs.
Previously, Pardot only had an SSL certificate for the go.pardot.com URL, meaning that it was unable to support HTTPS in vanity domain URLs. For HTTPS websites, Pardot administrators needed to use the go.pardot.com URLs when embedding forms and other Pardot content to avoid prospects seeing a warning message.
Pardot has recently announced in the success community that SSL for vanity domains will be available from February 1st, and some customers have started to see this functionality appear in their account this week.
With the release just around the corner, we are awaiting the documentation from Pardot in terms of the specific technical information, then we will provide a more detailed overview.
I am pleased to announce that this feature finally has a release date! SSL for Vanity Domains will be available to *all* Pardot customers on February 1, 2018. Thank you for your patience through the long wait for this delivery. Keep an eye out for a blog post for more information.
