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.
