    Did you know that Google shows all non-SSL websites as “Not Secure”. This means that if you are not using a SSL certificate on your website, then you’ll lose customers trust.

    Because SSL certificate helps protect your website data, it’s actually a requirement for accepting payments online.

    Normally, paid SSL certificates are quite expensive. If you are just starting a blog or making a DIY business website, then you likely want to keep costs low.

    Luckily, there are multiple ways to get a free SSL certificate to reduce your website cost. In this article, we will show you how to easily get a free SSL certificate for your WordPress website and set it up all by yourself.

    How Can I Get an SSL Certificate for Free?


    A lot of website owners are reluctant to use SSL due to the additional cost. This left many small websites vulnerable to data and information theft.

    A non-profit project called Let’s Encrypt decided to fix this by establishing a free certificate authority.

    The purpose of this certificate authority is to make it easier for website owners to get a free SSL certificate. Internet becomes a safer place if more and more websites start using SSL.

    Due to the significance of the project, it quickly earned the support of major companies like Google, Facebook, Shopify, WordPress.com and many others.

    The challenge is that installing the free SSL certificate by Let’s Encrypt for a beginner user is quite difficult because it requires coding knowledge and server systems knowledge.

    Thankfully, all of the best WordPress hosting companies are now offering free SSL certificate with all their hosting plans (some are using Let’s Encrypt).

    Choosing one of these providers will save you from the hassle of installing the free SSL certificate on your own.
