Get an SSL certificate for your domain
You can obtain an SSL certificate for your site by:
- Using a web host that integrates SSL and configures HTTPS for you.
- Getting an SSL certificate from a Certificate Authority (CA)
A number of web hosts provide SSL certificates and automatically configure webservers to support HTTPS connections.
Google provides SSL security for the sites hosted on the following Google products for free.
You can create a site through Google My Business and integrate it with your secure namespace domain.
- 'Create your free website with Google' in the Google My Business help centre
- 'Use your existing domain name for your new site' in the Google My Business help centre
You can set up a custom domain name for Blogger to satisfy the security requirements of a domain in a secure namespace (.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. See 'Set up a custom domain' in the blogger help centre
Google's web host partners can provide security at a variety of prices, starting from no additional cost.

You can also integrate your domain with any other web host that provides SSL security. See 'Map your domain to a third-party web host' for a instructions on integrating your domain with several popular web hosts. Read your web host's help centre to make sure that it provides SSL.
You can obtain an SSL certificate for your domain directly from a CA. You will then have to configure the certificate on your web host or on your own servers if hosting it yourself.
