I go through the process of signing up with a domain registrar, getting a domain name for personal use, getting a SSL certificate voucher, generating a CSR, submitting it and finally getting an approved SSL certificate. Note that the SSL part is optional. I am only getting one because the web application that I’m using requires it.
Also note that the domain names for personal use aren’t that important. For businesses domain name selections are extremely important.
