Free first-year domain registration
HostGator offers free domain registration for newly purchased Shared Hosting plans. You can have your 1 free domain on a 12-month or longer billing cycle. After the first year, the domain will renew at the regular annual rate.
All Shared Hosting packages include a free SSL certificate that provides security for your website domains and subdomains by encrypting communications between the server and visitors to your website and flags your site secure by displaying a padlock icon in your address bar. To install your free SSL Certificate, please follow the directions in the article below.
If you have a Hatchling, Baby, or Personal Plan, you may upgrade your account to the Business plan to take advantage of the Free Positive SSL Certificate by using the steps outlined in the How Do I Upgrade My Account to a Better Plan? article.
Once you've upgraded to the Business plan, you can order the Positive SSL certificate directly from your Customer Portal at no charge. See the following article for the step-by-step directions:
Please note that you may keep the SSL as long as you are hosting with HostGator; however, like all SSL certificates, the SSL must be renewed every year from your Customer Portal's SSL Certificates section.
Follow the steps outlined in the How Do I Upgrade My Account to a Better Plan article when you are ready to upgrade; there is no contract when you are on a plan. You can also read the following article to learn more about the different hosting plans HostGator offers.
