    If I needed SSL, I think I would transfer my domains there.
    It looks like they have some very good transfer and renewal rates too.

    Edit: I wish Godaddy could be that competitive.

    How to retrieve your SSL certificate
    Don't want to host your website at Porkbun? No problem! You can still get an SSL from us as long as you are using our nameservers. To download your certificate, click the "Details" button in Domain Management. Then click the "Edit" link next to SSL.

    looks like they support ssl as long your domain there using their NS . its my best option for me.
    thanks for mention porkbun

    For NS hosting, I think Dreamhost can provide SSL

    My hosting plan at Dreamhost allows unlimited domains and SSL for about 100 per year.
    It's worth it just for SSL if you need it, but I cannot vouch for it because I have not tried it.

    You don't need SSL to redirect domains to your website.
    Don't need to host the domains, either. Just
    redirect them at the registrar level . There are several ways to do that.

    Yes, free SSL at Epik.com.

    Also, check this out:

    https://dnencrypt.com/

    It is our answer to LetsEncrypt with free Commercial DV certificates as well as competitively priced premium SSL certificates.

    That brand name was selected right here on Epik and is now in full production. Your Epik login and Masterbucks wallet both work there.

    I can't find anything on the Epik website about free SSL.
    Are we supposed to navigate https://www.dnencrypt.com to get free SSL?
    Do we have to use Epik as a host to get this free SSL?

    Dnencrypt appears to be reselling NameCheap certificates at this time?

    Dnencrypt PositiveSSL: $7/yr
    NameCheap PositiveSSL: $5.88/yr

    Dnencrypt PositiveSSL Wildcard: $60/yr
    NameCheap PositiveSSL Wildcard: $39.88/yr

    not too competitive prices ;-() I was expecting something better from this project!

    They are almost the cheapest. However, depending on the certificate type you need, you may find better prices on gogetssl.com - for example, right now it is $5.39 /year for the simpliest domain validated certificate.

    If you host your site on AWS they provide completely free certificates through AWS Certificate Manager that renew automatically every year.

    Or you can use Cloudflare that provide free SSL and DNS.

    I'd also add "simple hosting" from gandi.net to the list (they are ssl certificate authority themselves and ICANN-accredited registrar). Not the cheapest registrar, but there is no need to register domains with them in order to use "simple hosting" service where one would receive free 1-year-long commercial certs. from Gandi, renewalble automatically.

    However, @Nas.er wanted to remain with his current hosting, so in this case CloudFlare option would be the best imo. Even if there is no ssl cert. installed within the hosting company for a particular website - then CloudFlare will still generate one, and the site would become https for all visitors...

    Most of hosting using free ssl service from let's encript. Just search shared hosting that give unlimited domains, unlimited ask, unlimited database. I'm using smallweb https://portal.smallweb.net/order/forms/a/Njgy
    Only for $4 /year. Or use your own hosting + cloudflare for free ssl and CDN.

    SSL certificates are free these days - don't pay for it unless you want the convenience of somebody doing it for you.

    Either do it via Amazon CloudFront or via Let's Encrypt (but this is for situations where the above is not possible as it is slightly more complicated, but once you get your head around it it is easy peasy. Needs a bit of linux knowledge

    Below is the write-up but I can't transfer the screenshots over. It's my first post, but I have no intention of marketing my blog post, I just like looking at domains in my past time. Anyway if anybody wants to see the pictures and full guide just google "CRUD Web App With Angular, Node.JS, MySQL". If anybody needs some small tips of web dev, let me know - I can't do any work but I can help point you in the right direction.


    Adding an SSL certificate to our main website
    Click into your CloudFront distribution and edit its general settings. Enter your custom domain into the Alternate Domain Names (CNAMEs) field. You will then need to click on the button to request a certificate from AWS Certificate Manager (ACM). We need to create a custom SSL certificate through ACM for our custom domain and cannot rely on the default CloudFront Certificate. This is because CloudFront does not know whether we truly own our domain, so we need to go through a process to verify this.

    Follow the steps to request a certificate in ACM, using the domain name *.yourdomain.com to capture all subdomains and root domains (we want all of them to be attached to our SSL certificate).

    On the next page, select DNS validation as your validation method. In Step 3, there is no need to add any tags for our tutorial, so just progress through the remaining steps to generate your certificate. ACM will give us a CNAME record that we need to add to our domain (in Google Domains for me, as Google hosts my domain).

    Obviously, only somebody who has access to the domain can add a CNAME record, so this is an easy way for ACM to validate your claim to the domain.

    Once you add this CNAME record, you will have two CNAME records in the DNS settings for your main domain. One for pointing your domain to CloudFront and one for validating the domain with ACM for the SSL certificate.

    It will look something like the below (noting my CNAME record below is different to the above, because that was just an example — but in your case, the CNAME record you create above will be exactly what goes into the below):
    It will take ACM a few minutes to validate your domain, and subsequently generate an SSL certificate.

    Now go back to your CloudFront distribution settings, select Custom SSL Certificate and link your recently created SSL to your domain (from the same page where you requested a custom SSL certificate, you can now find your newly created certificate and add it to your distribution). Save changes.
