SSL and Ad Networks

Hey folks,

We are contemplating moving our website to https. We confirmed with our adserver that we should be able to accomplish this on their end. But does anyone have any insight to which ad network / demand partners are able to comply with and work in this environment? Any light that could be shed on this (partners that can/can’t, tips, other unexpected issues, etc…) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.



I highly encourage "SSL everywhere" or Always On SSL as best practice, fully encrypting the entire web session. Not only does it help increase security and privacy between your site / ad server, for other it will improve their SCO. The server performance issues are a non-issue,
