according to Let's Encrypt CA statistics, as of November 2017, Firefox-loaded web pages with HTTPS-enabled ratios accounted for 67%, a huge boost compared to 45% at the end of last year. Browser developers like Mozilla, Google is ready to take the next step: to mark all HTTP sites as unsafe.

There are many free and useful SSL certificate, so this article will take a look at the free SSL certificate of those things.

The only drawback is that the certificate issued by let's Encrypt is valid for only 3 months, although it can be automatically renewed through scheduled tasks.
How to apply? You can use the lamp add command to automatically create an SSL certificate by installing lamp. You can also apply for a certificate manually through the following online application website.

Official website: https://www.cloudflare.com/
Reviews: Cloudflare early on to provide free SSL certificates, provided that your domain name to be placed in the Cloudflare resolution, registered as the release Plan.
Note: As long as the domain name joins Cloudflare free Plan, when parsing a record, click traffic to this hostname will go through Cloudflare. In general, this free Universal SSL contains a large heap of other people's Domain names (the certificate is also issued by Comodo). Of course, if you care more about this, you can pay to buy its dedicated SSL Certificate ($5/month) or dedicated SSL Certificate with Custom hostnames ($10/month).

Reviews: actually ALPHASSL does not provide SSL certificates for free and is expensive. But Alphassl and SingleHop have a cooperative relationship, free to SingleHop's customers issued certificates, even including the wildcard SSL certificate. According to this rule, a tool for automatic distribution of certificates has been developed. See: Https://github.com/Vittfarne/ASSL
in other words, if you have a SingleHop service, you can use your account password and the tool to become a live Lei Feng. But, inevitably, such a live Lei Feng is not long. In general, the end will be due to abuse by SingleHop to close the account.
It is important to note that if you apply for this SSL certificate, there will be an awareness that SSL certificates may be revoked at any time.
