What is the difference between a Free SSL Certificate rather than a paid one?

Some certificate authorities such as Let's Encrypt and Cloudflare's COMODO Universal SSL have been giving it free of charge and has no cost. But I am curious about the difference of the paid SSL certs like Digicert or others.

Can you please explain this to me? Or what security they can provide if we choose a paid or a free one?

Both offer the same level of security, the private key is private regardless of whether you use your own or a shared certificate.
Feel free to PM for broken links!

The price.

however, some paid certificates offer a warranty if the security of their certificate were to be broken. some also have different renewal periods. EV or extended validation certificates also have the name of the company or whatever in the address bar but read up on this:  https://scotthelme.co.uk/are-ev-certific...ritten-on/

There is no real difference. Let's encrypt is a trusted authority as much as anyone else. Security is the same, but you will have to renew the certificate every 3 months. There are utilities that can do that for you automatically depending on your host.
