  1. #1 or for SSL

    I'm setting my first eCommerce site and right now I need to resolve the following issue.

    I need to install (well, the hosting company will do it for me) a SSL certificate and I need to know what is best or common practice, to use or

    I don't know what difference it would make but it seems to do so because the hosting company is asking me to choose. Being that I'm clueless about this, I would also appreciate a quick explanation on the benefits or downfalls of using either one.

    it really does not matter, but the SSL will only work on one of them; unless you have bought an wildcard SSL in that case your best choice would be without www.

    If your main site name with www, use same for SSL.
    Hostname without www used rarely. Best way - always use site name with www and redirect users to if they visit site by hostname without www.
