Can a page that does not show HTTPS in the URL send secure SSL data?

+2 votes
I am in contact with Pandora One who tells me that there web page encryprs and transmits just the credit card card data even though the URL is not preceded by HTTPS.  Is this possible or are they blowing smoke??


The Norton certificate in the lower right corner of their page indicates that the HTTPS must be there for a SSL transmission

for a page to be secured with an ssl certificate the link will need to show https, to know if the site is secured with the norton certificate , by clicking on the norton seal it will load a pop up which will contain information about the organisation it was issued for exp date and the site the certificate is for , if the seal is just an image i would think twice if i was you :) 

you have more information on ssl certificate by visiting

Yes it can, although having  the https in the url gives the visitor a feel-good feeling. If they are not showing https in the url, then look at the source code of the page and do a search for:

<form action="https://www.someform.com/page_your_info_should_be_sent_to">

Notice the 'https' is inside the page.
