Secure certificate. Users may obtain their own secure certificates or purchase one through Hemp.Net for $50/year. We register certificates through instantssl.com.
Domain name registration. We recommend our users register their own domains. This has many benefits. It is a better deal, financially. It familiarizes the user with the processes involved with domains names, which allows them to be more self-sufficient in future domain name matters.
You can register a domain name through many, many different registrars. We highly recommend using Gandi, a French registrar with fair pricing (12 euros) and, more importantly, fair policies. (Gandi's contract states that you own your domain name; Verisign believes they own it.) Use the Hemp.Net Gandi ID -- BL135-GANDI -- when Gandi asks you for a technical contact.
Alternatively, we are happy to register the domain name on your behalf for $25.
