I am very new to building applications on Facebook's platform. I don't own a hosting space nor a domain name, so i'm using free hosting/domain name at the moment and I need to create a Facebook app for a school project. However, there is this Secure Canvas URL field that I have to fill. Should the free hosting service have a SSL certificate (or whatever it is) in order to be able to load my app? I'm using 000webhost.com ? Any solution for this?
Yes from November 1st 2011 the facebook application should have the secure connection for their applications Here you may find some answer I dont have secure canvas url (I can't afford for https connection)
Forward is great for testing/developing facebook apps. It has a free trial:
