Free SSL certificate providers?
Can anyone share me a list of free ssl certificate providers? I know lets encrypt and cloudflare but there are some better these providers?

I know Comodo also provide a free SSL certificate service, you have to renew it manually from your client area every 3 months (So it's a good way to promote their other paid services).
But letsencrypt is the only one to provide free SSL certificate, with custom configuration and settings and SAN support (you can secure 1 to 100 domains with a single certificate).
They will also provide wildcards certificates in January 2018. So, if you find another free service, they will most likely provide a limited service, to ask you to pay for a paid certificate).VirtuBox - Hosting, Managed Services & Support

Let's Encrypt is the real free SSL provider as far as I know. There is one more option to go with Comodo's 3 motnh free SSL which is already integrated with cPanel to generate auto-SSL, but keeping track is a real pain if you are approaching it seriously and ongoing. If you find any other free SSL options, it should be integrated to the respective service offered by the provider and it should not be an independant SSL provider.

By default it is loaded with cPanel (powered by Comodo) so that you do not need to combine it with Let's Encryot or any other CA. Of course you can use it for your domains. But if you are seriously approaching the security certificate [ like running an e-commerce website ], paid SSL is what recommened to increase the domain validity amonf your viditors.

Yes, like @mobin said,
auto-SSL is the cPanel/WHM extension to provide free SSL certificates powered by Comodo (like Cloudflare). You can choose between auto-SSL certificate or Let's Encrypt.
