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.

I just saw this, wondering what the difference is?

Wondering x2 here. It seems StartSSL certs are issued by StartCom. I just checked Windows' certificate repository, and StartCom's CA verification root cert is present, so that says to me that certs signed by these folks shouldn't present any problems to Windows users who browse to a site using them. Not sure about other platforms, but if it's in here, it's probably elsewhere by default too.


StartCom's free certs don't include verification, but probably for most people, that's not necessary.

Yes you can...however, you will need to pay $2 a month for a unique IP unless you have the business plan (which comes with a free SSL anyway) and also a $10 install fee.

Forgive the (probably) dumb question, but I presume this only works for domains registered with Godaddy, correct? (i.e., won't work for ones registered with register.com/hover/etc.)

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).
That hasnt been true for several years now due to SNI, though not all hosts/servers may support it.

please note that startssl is not "free" if your site is involved in financial or commercial activities, especially if it is a commerce site. It is approx $60 for their cert for their Class 2 cert which will be required.

"Note: A fee of US$ 59.90 is charged for Class 2 personal identity validation."

"Identity and organization validations are valid for 350 days. After the validation period expires they must be re-validated exactly the same way as the first time." -- i.e. another $60 yearly.

Looks like the certificates begin after you turn them on.

Ok, I have the deluxe account that lets me host multiple domains. My questions are

Since this SSL is tied to only one domain name, can i just swap the name this certificate is associated with. Or once I associate it with a domain, I am not allowed to change it.

Also does this mean that we get a static ip the moment we apply this SSL certificate
