We are always being asked "What is the difference between GoDaddy and SSL certificates here?" and "Why is GoDaddy more expensive?". We hope to answer these questions by comparing Godaddy's Standard SSL and PositiveSSL from Sectigo/Comodo available on this website.
As you can see all certificate features including security level, website benefits, etc. remain the same.
So you are only paying extra for the website warranty. The rule-of-thumb is higher the value of payment transactions on your website, higher the warranty needed to cover issues. Do you need a higher warranty for your website?
Plus, you can also use PositiveSSL with most GoDaddy Web Hosting options. So if you use GoDaddy Web Hosting you are not locked-in to use only GoDaddy SSL.
We hope this post has been informative and can help you make a more informed choice of SSL certificate for your website.
