The Differences

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.
