Dear Airtable Community!
I’m designing a website that lets users search for and find organizations, collectives and cooperatives in Mexico City that match their interests. Since I don’t know how to code, I decided to use airtable as my data source and simply embed search forms on wix that redirect to specific google calendar views and airtable views based on the person’s interests.
Now that I’m thinking of publishing the site, I realized I know nothing about websites! If somebody is filling out an embedded airtable form in a wix site, would I need an SSL to protect the information they share? I’m not collecting anything as sensitive as payment info, but I do use airtable forms to collect emails, full names, and addresses for volunteers or people who want to make in-kind donations.
I would also love any recommendations on where to purchase a domain. I will need to pay at least the combo plan in wix to have my own domain, but am hesitant to buy the domain with them since they can’t tell you up front how much it will cost for your second year (first year is free). I looked into buying my domain on godaddy or namecheap, but then realized that I’d probably have to transfer it over to wix anyways and pay wix’s domain prices, unless I managed to connect name servers? Does anyone have experience doing this? Then I realized there was the additional optional cost of a privacy and protection plan with godaddy/name cheap? Is this something I need to protect my user’s data?
Sorry for all the questions! I’m so new to this!
