I made the decision to obtain a domain for my website, and then questioned the significance of having an SSL certificate (HTTPS). Does the certificate relate to the domain or hosting?
Additionally, can you recommend a reliable provider for both domain registration and hosting services?

It's not mandatory, but it's recommended. What is the reason for building your website?

SSL certificates are connected to domains, although there are various types available, which seem to be associated with the primary domain and subdomains.

For hosting, I suggest either Fornex or Cloud4Box. For domain registration, I recommend Namecheap.

The importance of having an ssl certificate . i.e. https. it directly depends on the goals. This certificate is issued for the domain and the hosting compliance is checked. And the main thing is that the domain registrar and hosting should be different offices.

What are the benefits of switching to HTTPS for you and your website visitors?

Firstly, it protects clients' personal data, which is essential in an open environment such as the Internet. Without HTTPS, those who own a Wi-Fi access point can view private data like credit card information if the user purchases anything online.

HTTPS also ensures security against unauthorized advertising and guarantees that the information reaches its intended recipient in its original form. If the website is not protected by HTTPS, a restaurant or hotspot owner can add additional ads to the site or reduce the image quality to save traffic. HTTPS ensures that the website cannot be modified without authorization.

Finally, using HTTPS increases trust and reputation with your site's visitors. The SSL certificate confirms that the site is legitimate and who it claims to be. With HTTPS, users will know that when they visit example.com, it really belongs to example.com and not a hoax website. Additionally, some certificates can even verify the website owner's legal identity, making it clear that yourbank.com is actually owned by YourBank, Inc.

Quote from: ManiQuadraIncorp on Jul 19, 2022, 12:36 AMI decided to register a domain for some site, the question arose of how important it is to have an ssl certificate. https.
Is this certificate tied to a domain or hosting?
And advise a good domain registrar and hosting provider.


What does an SSL certificate give? Everything and nothing. If you rent a hosting for your personal, then you do not need a ssl. But if you are using it as a funnel to acquire a client or create a business, then SSL is extremely important. I'm not talking about the fact that Opera and Mazil are extremely negative about such sites (there will immediately be a red warning page about the lack of encryption). One way or another, but ssl is necessary.
I recommend A2, Hostinger and Blueness. There you can get a certificate absolutely free of charge, and they have good servers.

An SSL certificate provides security by encrypting the data that is transmitted between a user's browser and the website server. This encryption ensures that sensitive information such as login credentials, payment details, and personal data are protected from potential interception by malicious third parties. In addition to security, having an SSL certificate also signals trust to your visitors as it displays the padlock icon and "https://" in the URL, indicating a secure connection.

Now, regarding its relation to the domain and hosting, the SSL certificate is typically associated with the domain. When you obtain an SSL certificate, it is issued to a specific domain name, and it needs to be installed on the web server where your website is hosted. So, while the SSL certificate is linked to the domain, it is implemented at the hosting level to enable secure communication between the user's browser and the server.

As for reliable providers for domain registration and hosting services, I recommend considering well-established companies such as Namecheap, GoDaddy, or Bluehost. These providers offer domain registration services with easy management interfaces and competitive pricing. When it comes to hosting, companies like SiteGround, HostGator, and Bluehost again are known for their reliable services, excellent customer support, and various hosting options to suit different website needs.
Obtaining an SSL certificate for your domain is crucial for both security and building trust with your website visitors. Additionally, choosing reputable providers for domain registration and hosting services will ensure a smooth and secure online presence for your website.
