    Hey guys looking for a free SSL provider - reliable and trustworthy.

    - Would really appreciate any suggests. Trying to avoid paying for an SSL certificate if I can get a free one.

    Yup, I have been using Lets Encrypt for some time now as well. I noticed that most of the hosting providers I use have now enabled it as a default and on one provider it was not enabled, they sent me the documentation to enable it in Cpanel/WHM and it was basically just the click of a button. So its certainly becoming pretty standard.

    Best thing is opening a ticket with your host and just ask if they provide it or if they can send you instructions on enabling it. If they dont offer it, might even be worth moving host because the amount you save not having to buy premium SSL certificates makes it well worth while.

    Cloudflare provides reliable free SSL certificates. Have been using it with AWS free tier to host my site completely free :D

    Most blogs, information, review type sites you can get away with free SSLs.
    If you're taking payments then processors will demand a secure SSL with financial compliance.

    World Pay as an example; All merchants who receive credit or debit card payments must meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) to protect cardholder information.

    Using lets encrypt and cant complain. Most host providers offer this feature on their webhostings with automatic installation and cert reactivation.
