    This is a trick I found a while ago so I'm not completely sure if it still works but I'm sure it still does.

    This is the method I found with godaddy but it can easily be done with other hosts too

    Step 1:
    Sign up to Godaddy Ultimate Hosting which gives a free SSL (only sign-up for 1 month)

    Step 2:
    As soon as your SSL is issued then cancel the hosting. They should let you keep the SSL

    Step 3 (optional):
    Use alpha SSL to switch over your SSL to them for free. This then completely removes godaddy from the equation and then you don't have anything to worry about.

    Step 4:
    Enjoy your new super cheap SSL!

    Like I said before you could just do this with other hosts aswell but I just Happened to use godaddy when I found this.

    Godaddy hosting is not that bad to ditch it so badly. You will have to pay for ip on other site. commodo offers like normal ssl for less than 10$. I will prefer them over GD. Plus first year is free upgrade to SSL, which is awesome..
    You can also search for promos time to time

    Namecheap is running a great special right now on SSLs. If you buy a domain name, you can add an ssl for $1.95. I bought 5 with my last 5 names. The best deal outside of that I can find is with www.cheapssls.com. This is also owned by namecheap but the best deal on there is about $10 for a Comodo cert.

    Thanks for all the additions guys but I've now found this which gives a free 90 day ssl. you can then use the trick and get it for a year.

    Or you can buy a reseller account using a 25% - 40% off code (pay only about $40 - $50) and get a free ssl, free hosting, free website builder, free email marketing and more :D
