Deal Details

I just discovered on GoDaddy that they're offering their standard SSL certificates for $5.99 per year. You can buy multiple, and for multiple years, at this price. I'm not sure how long this will last. Let me know if it works for you.

EDIT: It appears that Slickdeals changed the link somehow (probably adding their referral ID) and so the above link doesn't seem to be working. However, entering the following promo code seems to work:

LKSRTL599s

Just add a standard SSL cert to your cart.

If you don't know whether you can use them, do you really care whether you have SSL?

Of course, I'm building a shop site and I know I'll need one eventually the question is whether this will work for me. I'm not far along enough to have read up on it but this is clearly a steal.

Someone told me that I have to also pay for dedicated/static IP on the hosted website in order to use a SSL certificate with it.

True or not?
Used to be true, but not anymore. Though will still depend on if your host supports it or not.

thanks erishun
  1. To throw one more into the kitchen sink Big Grin, I have a VPS with dedicated IP, where I host two domains, will this meet/suffice for SSL certs criteria, i.e. more than 1 domain on my VPS IP?
  2. Or should I restrict it to one IP per domain per VPS.
  3. Or do I purchase another dedicated IP?

Management
/where and what does SSL look for, and do I configure it in the godaddy zones? Right now, the zones (CNAME, etc) are controlled inside godaddy, and some of them resolve using a nameserver (I'm guessing this is shared), and some that resolve to the IP of my VPS.

Any coupons for dedicated IP?
as long as the site always has the same IP address, you're fine. if you have a vps with dedicated ip and it's working now, you'll be fine with the certs (you'll need one for each URL as it only covers EXAMPLE.COM and WWW.EXAMPLE.COM, so no subdomains and no other domains...)

Are you using GoDaddy hosting? Or just GoDaddy for domain names? If you've got a 3rd party host, the domain nameservers will likely be set in GoDaddy to point to the other host. So, if you have, say, HostGator, the nameservers will be NS799.HOSTGATOR.COM and NS800.HOSTGATOR.COM and the dedicated IP will have to be ordered at this host.

If you have GoDaddy hosting, from what I've heard, when you install a GoDaddy SSL cert on GoDaddy hosting, they automatically assign you a dedicated IP so there's no need to order one. That's the way it was though, not sure if they still do this.

There's other reasons to have dedicated IP (wildcard CNAMES, etc) and at one point it was cheaper to get an SSL, install it and get your "free dedicated IP" than it was to just buy the dedicated IP... I remember reading that. Not sure if they killed it though. YMMV

For $7, you can transfer your domain to Namecheap for another year of registration, and get a year of Comodo certificate. Plus, you skip over all the GD upselling crap. I'm not so sure that this is a good deal.

Even better - wait for a $0.99 transfer coupon code, and knock another $4 off.
+1, thats what I been doing.

I just bought one. Price was too cheap to pass up even though I won't build a website that needs it until later this year or early next year. I bought 5 years. Cheapest SSL I've ever bought.
same here... $24.95 with the other coupon!

imo, not clearly a steal. For one, startssl is free. If you are building a commerce site (shop site?) this $5.99 product may not be the right one for you, if you want the silly green extended validation thing anyways.

A dedicated IP and static IP are not the same. Unless he gets two dedicated IPs (as in, for his use only, he is the only site served off of port 443), this will not work. It matters not whether the IPs change (are static) in the future (that is what DNS is for).

FYI: Godaddy certs are not 100% standard so applying them to certain devices doesn't always work. cisco ssl accelerators are an example...this is probably not an issue for anyone on this forum though
Do you know what is non-standard about the GoDaddy certs? What about it makes it not work with the the accelerator?

Yes, there are free certs. I don't see how this is a good deal when you can get free SSL certs recognized by major browsers from startssl

http://www.startssl.com/

I've been using their free certs for a few years now.
I just saw this, wondering what the difference is?

Confused ok so which one do I get, a dedicated or static. I have two scenarios:-
  1. VPS with its own IP (not sure if its dedicated or static)
  2. and I have hosting at 3rd party, just nameservers

If I had to guess, they would be chained SSL certs. I.e. Root CA signs Intermediary CA signs yours. In this scenario, in order for the browser to be able to validate your certificate, the server needs to be able to include this intermediary certificate in the SSL handshake.

You will either need two VPS each with their own dedicated IP, or one VPS with two dedicated IPs.... or if you don't care too much about IEwhateveritis, and godaddy supports it with these cheapie certs, get one cert with both names, and then you only need one IP.
