- Get a Free Private SSL with a Business or Enterprise Plan
Private SSL certificates can be ordered for any type of hosting HostGator offers except the Hatchling plan.
HostGator is pleased to offer you two options for private SSL certificates. Each protects your site with 2048 bit signatures and up to 256 bit encryption, and each can be ordered for up to three years.
The Positive SSL and Comodo SSL certificates are designed to cover a single domain (like yourdomain.com) or subdomain (like secure.yourdomain.com).
Example: You order a Comodo SSL certificate for yourdomain.com. We will automatically configure it to cover both yourdomain.com and www.yourdomain.com
HostGator offers SSL certificates from Comodo, providing a range of options to secure and protect your sites.
Positive SSL and Comodo SSL Certificates
The Positive SSL
The Positive SSL certificate is our most affordable option but offers strong protection for your information, and also includes Comodo's $10,000 limited warranty.
Customers with a Business or Enterprise hosting plan may request a Positive SSL Certificate at no additional charge by submitting this form.
Hatchling and Personal Plans cannot support an SSL certificate, but can be easily upgraded to our Business or Enterprise plan.
Customers looking to secure a site on any other type of HostGator package can order a Positive SSL certificate for only $49.99 a year via our SSL order form.
The Comodo SSL
The Comodo SSL certificate also protects your data with the same security as the Positive SSL. However, each Comodo SSL comes with a $250,000 limited warranty against unauthorized transactions to give your visitors that extra measure of reassurance.
The Comodo SSL certificate is only $99.99 a year. Just go to our easy form to order your Comodo SSL today.

Verification of Domain Ownership
HostGator's SSL order forms have been updated to pull your domain's WHOIS email address for validation purposes. You will then be sent a verification email from Comodo to that address. You will be required to click the verification link in that email. Once that is done, your order will be sent to our validation team for approval.
