When buying a hosting SSL certificate for free

Let's Encrypt Free SSL Certificate

In the modern world, sites allow not only to receive information, but also provide hundreds of different services, including the ability to pay for purchases on the Internet, transmit data via a secure communication channel, and protect against interception of confidential information. And all this is ensured thanks to SSL certificates.

What is an SSL certificate?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) are certificates for a secure data transfer protocol that improve security on the visited resource. Most sites in 2021 use SSL certificates to ensure the security of transmitted information, including when working with payment services.

All information is transmitted via a secure data transfer protocol (https), however, in order for it to function and transmit data in encrypted form, an SSL certificate must be present on the server where the site is located, a kind of electronic signature, which displays full information about the legal person, domain, certificate activity period, organization details. And in fact, SSL confirms that a given domain name belongs to a real company, and not to fraudsters, including the use of a certificate with a secret key.

The cost of SSL certificates varies from 399 rubles and can exceed 60,000 rubles, depending on the chosen company, however, at the initial stage, you can also choose a free option.

Why Choose Let’s Encrypt Free SSL Certificate?

If you do not have the opportunity to buy an SSL certificate, you can use the free option in the face of Let’s Encrypt, which offers a secure connection to your site without any major changes to the server configuration. It is included in the official Debian distributions, so it is installed by default on many VDS and VPS servers and is available for ordering to all users.

Why choose a paid SSL certificate?

You should understand that a free SSL certificate will never replace a paid option for you, especially when it comes to guarantees. If you buy SSL, the certification center is responsible for security and gives financial guarantees, where the amount of insurance payments in case of user data leakage is immediately agreed.
