    Go with Let's Encrypt. If you are using a web host that supports them through cPanel, it is literally a case of pushing a couple of buttons to get your certificate up and running. If not, it is a little more complicated than that, but still pretty easy and free.

    I use ' Let's Encrypt' as well, for SSL, on my Siteground server. It's the best ..... fast, easy to use and inexpensive.

      I don't think any of the hosts owned by EIG are supporting Let's Encrypt. I would get away from iPage or any other host owned by EIG. They provide terrible service and an awful product.

          A couple I like and have had good experiences with are GeekStorage, StableHost, and HawkHost.

          All of them support Let's Encrypt too.

    If "Let's Encrypt" is not supported you need to find another host.

    Just my 2cents

    Most of the cPanel web hosting provider now a days provide "Let's Encrypt" and its free of cost, no need to pay anything for SSL certificate but as you mentioned your web hosting provider is not supporting "Let's Encrypt" , therefore you can try "Comodo Free Certificate" and if its also not supported by your web hosting company than its time to change web hosting provider.

  • You can run your DNS through CloudFlare. They are a free service that also optimizes your traffic. They also provide you with free SSL.

    If you use a VPS or a dedicated server use letsencrypt. It's very easy to install. Some shared hosting providers also support letsencrypt.

    Let's encrypt is giving SSL certificate at free of cost but for low cost source for SSL certificates & best customer support for free SSL installation guide I can suggest re-seller like ClickSSL
