(Update: Godaddy SSL Coupon Link still valid through March 2013)
Just wanted to pass along that GoDaddy is running a promotion right now where they are giving steep discounts on their SSL Certificates. You can get a standard SSL Certificate (Currently Selling for $69.99/yr.) for only $12.99 through a special affiliate offer they have provided us with.
No Coupon Code Required – see the savings instantly in your cart after clicking the coupon to the right.
To get yours, just click on the activate offer link to the right and you will automatically be taken to the special offer on GoDaddy.com.
Special Note: When you visit the page, the certificates show the regular price ($69.99) but once you add them to your cart, the discount will be automatically applied.
Why would you want an SSL Certificate, even if your site is not an e-commerce site?
When soemone goes to the secure-version (using https:// instead of http://) depending on their internet browser, they will not only see the address bar change colors indicating that the connection is secure, but might also see a “key” or “padlock” icon as well. You can add this extra assurance to your site by installing an SSL Certificate, so even if they are only submitting basic contact information, they know it is protected.
