Use hosts that integrate SSL and configure HTTPS

A number of web hosts provide SSL certificates and automatically configure web servers to support HTTPS connections.

Use a host that provides free SSL security

Google provides SSL security for the sites hosted on the following Google products for free.

Google My Business

You can create a site through Google My Business and integrate it with your secure namespace domain:

Blogger

You can set up a custom domain name for Blogger to satisfy the security requirements of a domain in a secure namespace, such as .app:

  • You must use blogger as the primary site for the domain. Do not use the web forwarding or subdomain forwarding features to redirect your domain or a subdomain to the blog.
  • If you already own the domain, follow the instructions in Integrate with Blogger.
  • If you already have a blog and want to add a secure domain, you can purchase it directly from the Blogger settings screen. For more information go to Set up a custom domain in the blogger help center.

Use our or another 3rd partner’s web host

Google’s web host partners can provide security at a variety of prices. They start from no additional cost: 

  • Bluehost (WordPress)  
  • Shopify
  • Squarespace
  • Weebly
  • Wix

For more information, go to Web presence

You can also integrate your domain with any other web host that provides SSL security. For instructions, go to Map your domain to a 3rd party web host.  Read your web host’s help center to make sure it provides SSL.

Get an SSL certificate from a Certificate Authority

You can obtain an SSL certificate for your domain directly from a Certificate Authority (CA). You'll then have to configure the certificate on your web host or on your own servers if you host it yourself. 

You can get a free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt, a popular CA that provides certificates in the interest of creating a safer Internet:
