ssl certificate

Where is the best place to get an SSL Certificate for a small business? I'm trying to get it as cheap as I can per year.

(Using Powerstore 3)

I see that godaddy has the basic for small businesses for 12.99 a year

I'm using lunarpages.com for hosting, and i think the ssl certificate is higher than that...

Also, I just read on my host that in order to have an SSL Certificate, I have to have a dedicated IP which is an extra 4.95 a month. Is this correct, or can I buy an SSL certificate through someone else and just install it for that domain without upgrading the IP?

There is already a shared ssl certificate on my host, but I've heard that this isn't the best way to go about securing your site. I'm just starting my business, and like I said before, I'm trying to spend less money than I have to because of the overhead I've already had to pay for.

Yes you have to have a dedicated IP for a cert to work properly because it's verifying that your domain belongs to that IP. Shared certs will show as belonging to your host.

Thanks. Would the godaddy ssl certificate that I posted a link to be good enough with the dedicated IP?

You may want to contact them to confirm that it is a dedicated cert but it looks ok to me.

I use GoDaddy's certs, hosting, everything. Best customer service I've ever experienced and their online control panels for managing certs and hosting are intuitive and actually work!

Thanks for the feedback, do you know if the cert referenced in the link is a dedicated one?

The GoDaddy Support guy wrote me back and said that the promotional discounted $12.99 basic SSL Certificate will work with a dedicated IP. Without the promotion, the SSL Cert is $29.99

That seems like a good deal to me if it is for a dedicated IP.
