I wanted to provide some additional thoughts and try to clear up any confusion that may exist around MyVR’s secure website support.
All MyVR websites provide a secure checkout experience, whether your website uses a subdomain of MyVR (eg: http://your-website.myvr.com) or a custom domain (eg: http://your-website.com). If you use a custom domain, we run the checkout experience through a secure subdomain of MyVR to guarantee the security of rental transactions.
All websites that use a subdomain of MyVR (eg: http://your-website.myvr.com) come with HTTPS support out of the box. There is nothing you need to do, HTTPS support is provided for you the second you create your website and setup your subdomain.
All websites that use a custom domain (eg: http://your-website.com) have historically not come with HTTPS support out of the box. They work great and still provide a secure checkout experience, but we have not been provisioning security certificates for custom domains out of the box. We are actively working to change this, and will be rolling out HTTPS support for all custom domains hosted on MyVR in the coming days. This includes domains purchased outside of MyVR as well as those purchased with MyVR. Behind the scenes it's a complicated process with lots of websites to transition, so it will take some time to complete. Nothing is required of you as we make this change.
Going forward, MyVR will offer HTTPS support for all websites out of the box, including custom domain websites. In fact, we will be shutting down support for HTTP entirely and will exclusively use HTTPS for website traffic. Customers do not need to do anything to enable this support, it will happen automatically for you.
If you currently have a website using a custom domain on MyVR and you want HTTPS support now, please write into support and we can try to bump your website up in the transition queue. Otherwise, plan on your website automatically receiving an HTTPS support upgrade in the coming days.
I hope that clarifies some of the questions that have come up. As we roll out full HTTPS support, we'll send out a product update outlining the new functionality in greater detail. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask them here and I’ll do my best to answer them.
