I swear that nobody's tracking these questions on here. I'm thinking of pulling my one site I just finished in Webook and looking at using something else....... Doesn't appear to be supported actively any longer. Which is sad, because I really like using it.

Using the search on this forum, you will find a few threads that discuss SSL. Cloudflare is a single-point-of-failure solution that applies SSL by routing all of your traffic through them, via DNS changes. It's a way to have SSL for hosts that that don't offer it. IMO, it's a crappy solution. It's not secure across then entire line.
Webhook's hosting does not support SSL, nor do I believe they have plans to. If you need SSL and hosting, then you should find an alternative provider. At $9/mth., you get what you pay for here.
But, if you self-host Webhook, you can certainly install your own certs on your Nginx border. It's yours to administrate.
An alternative static host/designer/CMS solution is Webflow, but you are more locked into their way to do things. I use it for design only. Anyway, there are rumblings that they are working on a hosted SSL solution (their free subdomain sites already get it.)
As far as the lack of "support" here in the forums, or activity... Not sure what to say. I've always treated Webhook more like a self-serve solution and haven't needed much help once I got into the swing of things. But the times that I did, albeit a while ago, the maintainers and users were much more active.
Anyway, the team always said they would keep the lights on as long as it paid for itself with the marginal monthly fees. But, I've never heard them say anything about ongoing free support (but you can usually get their attention via Twitter if you really have a true emergency.)

I think I'm just nervous about the launch of the site for my yenlaw client.
I used Webflow, but they don't really work well if you're using a mobile first solution - they start with the wide and go narrower (i.e. hack it down)... I'd rather start mobile and go to bigger, especially these days when mobile is where people look first before going to an larger device or actual computer.
And I didn't think about the fact that $9 definitely does NOT pay for free support. Having been a support person in the past, I get it.... I think I need to take a chill pill and relax a little LOL

Okay so now SSL is becoming required for everything, I'm not sure what to do. I have a client who wants to put Stripe for payments on their website which is hosted through webhook, so I don't know what to do to make this work for them as it needs SSL as I'm not that versed in this sort of thing - I'm a designer with SOME front-end skills (enough to design websites and put them on here). She's all signed up for Stripe (she did this before talking to me), and I was hoping they had a "page" like you can do with Paypal, that lets people go to her account and pay there, but I can only find ways for people to do this via their own sites....

This is the only thread I can see that discusses SSL when I put "SSL" in the search....

You can check out Cloudflare: https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl
I think others here have used it. I've used it on a WordPress site in the past.
It requires you to point your domain's DNS servers to it. Once that is done, you configure Cloudflare to use your Webhook site (eg. SITE.webhook.org) as the site origin. Cloudflare will proxy the requests, apply SSL and distribute your cached assets into its CDN.

I read about that - seems awfully hacky way to do it. Thanks though.
