Landingi Insights: Revision History and Self-signed SSL Certificate
A month ago we promised you all that we’d keep you informed about all the changes we implement in the Landingi app. In September and October we were quite busy with two new functionalities we’ve been developing. We genuinely hope they will help you work with our landing page creator even better!
Have you ever been working on a landing page, but your colleague had edited the latest version and replaced it with the wrong one? Now it won’t be a problem. You need just three clicks to get back to any previous landing page versions and continue your work right where you left off.
First, click the new button, which appears next to the “preview” and “save” buttons:
Now, you should see a sidebar with all the previous landing page versions (every “save” click makes it visible here):
Now you can choose any version you like, and click the button visible in the upper-right corner. It will load your landing page to the editor:
From here you can freely correct whatever you want or just publish it right away. It’s not so hard, is it?
We hope that this new feature will make your work with Landingi even easier and more fun! You don’t have to worry about accidental changes and interference by other account users. It’s easy to distinguish each valid version of your landing page, because every one of them is marked with the date and time of the edition as well as the e-mail address of the editor (if you use sub-accounts, available in Agency and White Label plans).
Self-signed SSL Certificate
Another significant change that we’ve prepared for our clients is an automatic SSL certificate service. Our priority was to cut waiting time to a minimum, as well as provide better security for every landing page made with Landingi.
Before, in order to get an SSL certificate on your website, you had to connect a domain and then inform us about it after the fact. One of our developers had to install an SSL protocol on the landing page afterwards. It was a lengthy process that irritated both sides. Now it’s changed.
The only thing you’ve got to do now is to redirect your domain to our hosting. Our system will detect it and automatically assign an SSL certificate. From now on, every landing page of yours is correctly secured!
What is an SSL certificate, anyway?
Why do you even need an SSL certificate and how to check if it’s implemented? Just take a look at any bank website:
The padlock icon and https prefix in the website address say that this page’s data is encrypted. Banks and other financial institutions have been obliged to have this certificate for a few years now.
Other websites don’t have a duty to implement an SSL Certificate, but it’s still worth it. Users are getting more aware of data-theft threats on the web, and they pay much more attention to security than in the past. They are more likely to perform actions on a “locked” website.
Another important thing is the impact that an SSL certificate has on web positioning. Google claims that secure websites are much easier to optimize in terms of SEO. In other words: there is literally no reason not to implement SSL on your landing page, but there are very serious benefits to using it.
This is not the end
Although the year 2018 is coming slowly to an end, we’re not done with our planned changes. Wait for the next part of “Landingi Insights”! in November and we’ll show you all the other improvements to our landing page platform.
We sincerely hope that our work will help you in building even better-converting landing pages and achieve even more sales of your products. Good luck!
