I need to get a standard dedicated SSL certificate and am wondering what the best one is in terms of cost, customer service, how well it works, and minimization of hassle (I'm not a technical person).
I know that with a promo code that you can get an SSL certificate from Godaddy for around $12 for the first year. But some of the reviews on them have been extremely bad (ie. very difficult to activate for a newbie and very poor customer service).
I am also considering Hostgator which is a lot more expensive, although they are considered almost legendary for their customer service. Furthermore, this is my hosting company so it might be easier to get it with them so that they will give me overall support, which I won't get if I have hosting with one company and the SSL certificate with another company.
Does anyone have any recent experiences regarding these companies (and any others) which they can share?
