Most meduim assurance certificates will work fine. You can find them for as low as $15 if you search the web. The service form godaddy, in my opinion, is better than the other companies I have used so I recommend them over the others.

godaddy is good enough for a shopping site which will deal with credit cards?

You can also check your hosting service, i purchesed and SSL certificate directly from my host and they do all the setup work, they use a GeoTrust service, it cost me 50$ but I figure if there is any problems since I got it directly from my host they will support it no problem.

Yes, many sites use them. But any certificate is not easy to order and install if you have never done it before. It can be done but, as Gregg mentioned, it might be better to let your host enjoy the aggravation, if they offer that service. If they charge too much though, or if you don't mind doing it, then you can do it yourself.

my host charges $99/year for a Geotrust QuickSSL Premium and the setup fee is $30...are these prices consider expensive?

I think that is too high a price for that certificate. Plus, there really isn't a reason to buy a high assurance certificate, assuming that is what that is.

Hi Jack- I have a question about this. I purchased one of the low cost certificates a few months ago. I haven't installed it yet though. My host (Startlogic) couldn't or wouldn't help me install it. How do I go about getting the necessary information to fill out the certificate and install it myself. Since I'm not making enough money at this right now, I really don't want to have to purchase the expensive one from Startlogic in order to have them install it.?

Thanks, Diane

Before you can obtain the certificate, you have to generate the key and csr files. If your host has that option enabled in their control panel, then you can do that yourself. If not, you won't be able to do it.
