They are all pretty much the same as far as encryption goes. The difference is in warranty and brand name. For smaller sites, you should be fine with an entry level certificate.

You do not need ssl for paypal. They handle it on their end unless you are using website payments pro.

SSL - as long as they offer 128-bit encription - there is techincally no security differnce.

So one worth 19 and another that is 900 they perform exactly the same. However one that is 900 - you may have the ablity to add your own sub-domains (shaired SSL) and stuff in the center may have other "ADDED" value/services or "Brand" or have "MIN" standards in order to obtain there "seal of approval".

The ONLY SSL that is not worth ANYTHING (cause you can create it for free) is the SELF SIGNED ones that no browser even trusts at all.

For MANY people who deal under 1/4 million in transaction a year - a PLAIN SSL will do. If you have more stringent needs - need to get/maintain an ISO rating or have a complicated corporate structure (public company) - they may be better suited to a more strigent BACKGROUND CHECKS and on GOING FISCAL & SECURITY MONITORING customer fraud guarrentee etc... that more expensive SSL provides.

I personally use GoDaddy for all my SSL needs. I believe its around $25 per year and its not a shared SSL cert.

If your paying (separately) for a shared SSL cert - your being robbed. Shared SSL is and only should be included in a HOSTING package.

There are Better people to deal with than GoDaddy - but then there are many that are alot worse than them.
