Hello Everybody this is just to help you…
Don’t buy ssl to insert it in your site because free hosting doesn’t
support certificate chain.
Just search for what is certificate chain if you don’t know
Certificate chain is needed to make your website trusted by all browsers.
Your ssl certificate would be such useless if your ssl installation is incomplete…
But if you don’t mind this, well buy ssl certificate!
If you don’t have ssl certificate chain it will be just trusted by some browsers like chrome
I would recommend you to use cloudflare and buy their $5 ssl because they will
Complete the chain for you without configuring your account on cpanel.
Your are right. The certificate chain is needed to make your website trusted by almost all browsers. However, without it, it will still be trusted by most browsers. All modern browsers and operating systems accept SSL certificates without the corresponding CA chain.
Why did I say almost all and not all browsers? Some severely outdated browsers and operating systems (Android 2, Windows XP, Internet Explorer 6) require all SSL websites to have a dedicated IP. This means they can’t visit your website even if you have a valid CA chain or you use Cloudflare, because neither we nor Cloudflare provides dedicated IP addresses. And unfortunately, there are still plenty of people who use such ancient and harmful devices.
So is a certificate at <$10 per year really “useless” if it creates security for 90% of your visitors?

Well it depends on people’s point of view or there opinions because some people would actually say that its not useless or it’s useless
