Does each hosting provider provide SSL ?
since ssl certificate is getting common these days,
many of hosting provider nowadays also provide ssl certificate.
Each hosting provider has a different offering for SSL certificates.
Some companies only offer hosting, and some companies only offer SSL certificates as these two are independent services. You can an SSL certificate from an external provider and then install it to your server or hosting.
Please note that you may face problems with your hosting provider if you buy the certificate from a different provider as they want to take this business also. They may not even allow the installation of a certificate bought from a third party in a shared hosting service. You should be fine if you are running a dedicated server or a virtual private server.
There are several types of SSL certificates you can get. The different types will vary on the validation done by the CA or certificate authority of your identity. This validation includes checking WHOIS records, verifying phone information, checking public references to your company, etc. The more they validate you, the more they will charge you.
Once you are validated by the CA, Certificate Authority, you get a certificate that can be installed to your hosting account.
My advice is that you contact your hosting company and get help with the installation of the certificate. This may require additional permissions and some technical background.
