Your 3dcart store comes with a free shared SSL certificate, but there are several reasons to get your own dedicated SSL, mainly the ability to check out on your own domain name rather than 3dcartstores and to obtain additional security depending on the SSL you use. If you already have a certificate from a third-party provider, we'll install and update it for you on an annual basis. However, remember that you'll still need to pay for that SSL certificate. To get the best results and functionality, we recommend that you get a dedicated SSL certificate
from one of our partners.
