Is that secure? What i mean is that the form is located at http://url.com/form.html

If it's submitted to, say, https://url.com/check.php - is the data sent encrypted from the form? Or would that form require being on a https:// server first?

edited because I added lots of extra rubbish that was not necessary :D

As far as I know, http is fine unless you are submitting things like cedit card numbers and what not. If you are doing that you want to use https.

If you want to send the form or validate it over https://

then the form needs to be in https://

otherwise it's just useless

Some browsers will even report that your submitting it over a secure connection from an unsecure connection. If thats the case whats the point?

Answer to your question? No thats not secure.

Many thanks, just remember seeing it somewhere that it was, but cannot find any information about it.

All done in https (forms located there as well) - so thanks for the response :)
