By default, Signicat’s portal is located at https://id.signicat.com — but to give the best user experience, and to avoid browser alerts when iframing Signicat’s solution into your website, it is recommended to establish a subdomain. Signicat offers subdomains which allow customers to run their complete integration with id.signicat in their own subdomain, under the customer’s own company domain. If the company’s domain name is yourdomain.com, the default name of the Signicat subdomain will be signicat.yourdomain.com.
These are some of the advantages of having a Signicat subdomain:
- Unlike with our standard solution, the login and signature web pages will appear to belong to the company itself. The end-user will have a coherent experience of being on the same website when logging in or signing documents, and will not be sent to an external website during these processes. There is still a redirect taking place, but it is less intrusive and will give a more unified end-user experience.
- The need for accepting third-party session cookies in the end-users’ browser disappears. Without the use of a Signicat subdomain, third-party session cookie acceptance must be set in browsers when Signicat’s authentication service will be accessed through an iframe.
