  2. You can't, that's a web server configuration option outside of WordPress.

    Depending on your host setup you may be able to do that in your host control panel.

    is necessary have a ssl certificate validated for some certificate institution?

  4. It really depends on what you are trying to accomplish using SSL.

    If you want to ensure data privacy while you are administering or logging into your WordPress installation, then a self-signed SSL certificate is free and should be enough for administration.

    Once you have that SSL cert installed on your website then you set some options in your wp-config.php (make a backup copy first) and you will be securing your credentials.


    Or use a popular plugin such as this one.


    If you plan to use your installation for ecommerce, then I think a certificate from a trusted SSL provider would be a better idea. Of course those are not free, but they're considered to be more appropriate and will work with any browser today.
