I have recently signed up for an account with a web host on which I am running an install of Wordpress. I am the only person that will be administrating it and I would like to have secure access to the admin console. As I am the only person who will be using it I don't require a properly signed certificate and am planning to use a self signed one that I generated.
My web host wants to give me a static IP and install the certificate on their servers, both of which have a charge attached.
My question is: is it ok to use the certificate that I generated on their servers and does the setup process and charges seem normal?
