    Here you go OP:

    http://support.hostgator.com/articl...-use/how-to-make-your-facebook-app-ssl-secure

    Note: if I remember well, the four #### in the url tu use for shared ssl should be the digits representing the server you are hosted on, you can find them in your cpanel login url (like gator####.hostgator.com)

    And no, you don't have to pay $10 nor to install anything to use HG's shared SSL. You need to pay only if you want to install your own private ssl.

    u need to chat with them and ask to install it, they will ask u the key and they do the rest, use a dedicated ip address

    I usually buy biz hosting plan from them that goes with free dedicated ssl, you need only to submit a form requesting ssl install
