I am making my very first site, and I need a way, to secure it.

Users must be able to post stuff on my site, but I want to prevent throttling my site or using bots to break it. I thought of making sign up/in system, but it's vulnerable to all kinds of attacks without SSL certificate, and it would cause users big trouble.

I just can't afford SSL certificate, I generally have $0 to spend to get one.

What should I do in this case?

    There is little you can do without SSL. Get a free cert from startssl.com and then come back with more specific questions. – Neil Smithline Nov 21 '15 at 19:12

    @OverCoder once you get your SSL certificate installed on your webserver, use ssllabs.com/ssltest to check your configuration for potential flaws – d0nut Nov 21 '15 at 22:38
