Since December last year, Efty has been offering SSL certificates for all custom marketplace sites on the Growth and Professional plans and as of today, they’ve made it possible to start redirecting buyers to SSL secured For-Sale landing pages hosted on EftyMarket.com.
This new feature allows you to start directing buyers to secure For-Sale landing pages without having to set up a custom marketplace domain. Users on the Growth or Professional plan can simply select the “redirect to eftymarket.com” option from the drop-down in their “Settings > Efty market” page and are good to go.
By enabling this feature all visitors on your domains that are using the Efty nameservers (ns1.eftydns.com/ns2.eftydns.com) will be forwarded to SSL secure For-Sale landing pages hosted on EftyMarket.com
All users can also link to individual For-Sale landing pages by using the following url structure: https://eftymarket.com/efty.com/(replace efty.com with your own domain name).
Efty explained why is this important:
Recently Google started labeling any websites that do not have SSL installed as “Not secure”. Enabling SSL not only helps keep your visitor’s information safe, having SSL on your For-Sale landing pages keeps their mind at ease because it provides authentication and trust. Web browsers give visual cues, such as a lock icon or a green bar, to make sure visitors know when their connection is secured. This means that potential buyers will trust your For-Sale landing page more when they see these signs and will be more likely to buy your domain or submit an inquiry.
