does the hostname require ssl

My new server has a hostname only eg:
No tld's for the hostname reside on the server.

The name servers are handled at the registra end (123-reg).
I have an A record pointing to the IP address at 123-reg.

Whilst all my user domains utilse SSL, the actual hostname doesn't.
Do I need SSL for the hostname, as this will be broadcast in email headers.

And if so, How would I create one, as there's no domain xyz,com on the server.
In fact other than being registered it has no content etc.
