I plan to get a SSL Certificate on my website.

I like go-daddy because you can call them and they pick the phone up quickly.

Here is my question: They have 3 packages...

http://www.godaddy.com/hosting/web-hosting.aspx?ci=8971

Can I buy any package and get a SSL Certificate on that package, or do I have to buy the ultimate package?

According to go-daddy rep they said I had to buy the ultimate package, but I would like to get you guys input before I make my decision.

Thank-you Very much for your opinion. :thumbup2:

For what reason do you think you need an SSL certificate?

I am collecting sensible information from people and I think that they would not like to share there information without a SSL (https) page. :wink:

SSL is used for secure login; it has nothing to do with sharing information. How do you think it is going to protect their information?

Different types of SSL certificates are available. I think SSL for domain only (HTTPS) is what you would need.
You can get Comodo PostivieSSL for $10/year and install on your web host. It is only for 1 domain validation.
But first check Godaddy management on how to install a SSL certificate.

I was researching that SSL or Secure Socket Layer Certificate, will encrypt the data being sent to my e-mail. :blink:

You can also get a free class 1 certificate from Startcom limited. Go to WWW.startcom.org and check it out. And their next class up, class 2 is if you wanted to have more than one top-level domain secure. But the free cert will secure your email server, web server, and other servers you have running as long as they're on the same machine, and they are running the same domain. The protocol doesn't matter.
