Is there any way? To Install Free SSL on Managed WordPress Hosting?

I am running a number of blogs, few days back i bought Godday Hosting. It's Managed Wordpress Hosting, I tried to find my way to Install SSL on my blog, http://kikforpc.org but it seems there is no way for that. I have to purchase SSL for managed Wordpress. However, I have other Websites on different servers, I was allowed to use free SSL without any problem. for e.g (https://www.forpchelp.com ).

 

What Should I Do?

The Managed WordPress System on GoDaddy is tuned specifically to work with their servers and place limits on server access for safety reasons. You can't install 3rd party SSLs on that system. You can purchase GoDaddy SSLs or you can use a shared server/VPS/Dedicated server to install whatever SSL you want.

Absolutley,

 

https://Cloudflare.com

 

Cloudflare offers FREE shared SSLs, Universal, and edge certificates. You can add many sites to 1 FREE account. Each site gets it's own shared SSL, Free Performance & Caching options, FREE apps, & more.

 

After you setup DNS at Cloudflare and get your SSL, make sure to get the WordPress free plugin "Really Simple SSL". https://wordpress.org/plugins/really-simple-ssl/

 

The Plugin will take care of most mixed content issues and make sure you have GREEN PADLOCK.

How do I fix the redirect loop Cloudflare keeps sending my website into when I install it?
