    If you need a signed certificate, use "let's encrypt". If you need generate a certificate, then use a program "openssl".

    I dont think because there are multiple type of SSL certificate ..... as you can see normally with color "Green" "Yellow". If some one is providing you free SSL then i am 100% sure that those SSL are not effective like other site is selling.

    Think once only that why its Free and why other selling for hundred dollar ;)

    One of the key parts of an SSL Certificate as proof of domain ownership is that it is signed with a private key, that you only have. If someone else were to obtain that private key, they could then create an SSL Certificates pretending to be you or revoke your existing certificates.


    In public key cryptography keys are inherently made in pairs, one "public " and other "private". Certificates are signed documents, which say that Issuer promises the Subject of the certificate has a private key which corresponds to the Public Key written down the certificate. The signature on the document is made using the private key belonging to the issuer which means that everyone who knows the Issuer's public key can check the signature is real. The certificate is not signed by the Subject, except in the special case of “self-signed” certificates, which have the exact same Issuer and Subject.


    For a typical web SSL cert, the Issuer might be Let’s Encrypt, the Subject might be and the Public Key might be a several hundred digit odd numbers (for the RSA algorithm most popularly used). This certificate would be signed by Let’s Encrypt, using Let’s Encrypts private key, which (because it is very important and mustn’t be stolen) is trapped inside a dedicated hardware device that knows how to sign certificates without any risk of revealing the key it is protecting.

    Its Perfectly fine to use it. Infact if you use cpanel you might find autossl / letsencrypt available as well. All these SSLs have a 90 day validity and are renewed automatically.

    You can also you cloudflare which gives free SSL as well.

    As your site grows ( and with that your budget ) you can try Green Bar EV ssls for better recognition and trust.

    I didn't know these guys. However, if you want to use SSL, try to use from Cloudflare or Letsencrypt, they're both good and worth for free using.

    It's the first time I hear about Zerossl.com. But it looks like it is just a useful service, which automates the installation of Let's Encrypt SSL certificate and its renewal every 3 months. There is a topic at Let's Encrypt forum where this service is discussed. To me, this service seems pretty safe. An alternative is to use popular hosting control panels, but they cost extra.
