    I got my domains registered with a company, my hosting service with another one, what about the ssl certificate?
    Should i buy it from one of these or choose something like RapidSSL / Global Sign ?

    Honestly Id go for whichever one is cheaper. It doesnt matter who you buy from, but each SSL will provide different features.

    Do you mean that the installation part is important? What if i buy from Global Sign? Won't they install it for me?

    I buy RapidSSL at the same place where I bought domain, and install it manually at my servers.

    If you are looking for an ssl and are unsure of how to install it with your host it should be pretty easy, IF you are using a cPanel host They may be able to help you.

    cPanel is just upload the .crt file to the server under the ssl certificates and it will auto install the ssl for you. the same is similar for Interowrx Control Panel.

    As for purchasing an ssl I suggest Gogetssl they are low cost, and have good support that is who I use.

    If you want an EV SSL Namecheap has a discount currently on those.

    You are aware that there are many SSL certificate provider and the price of this provider varies due to following:

    They have a better reputation.
    They have better customer services.
    They are trusted by all the browsers out of the box.
    They do better and more expensive due diligence of the companies they issue certificates to.

    If you have VPS then SSL provider will help you to install SSL. but if you have shared hosting plan then your hosting provider can install ssl on your behalf. If you need any help you can PM me.

    You can purchase SSL from whichever you want but make sure that your hosting server support all necessary protocol like TLS 1.2 etc.
