    I use GoDaddy SSL for my site - Removed - and I will be moving my website entirely to hostgator. But I am not sure about SSL transfer. Will I have to transfer my SSL too? Or will I have to buy anther certificate from hostgator? I also heard that cPanel also offer free SSL facility like Let's Encrypt.

    Any suggestion will be helpful.
    Thanks.

    HI @khalidyankee

    The SSL will transfer with the site if you're using cPanel's transfer tool or package account but if you're not you may need to reinstall the certificate once the site is on the new server. You should not have to buy another until the SSL certificate expires.

    cPanel does offer free certificates through the cPanel (backed by Comodo) provider and Let's Encrypt.
