I have two questions about SSL certificates that I'm hoping you guys will share your experience and thoughts on.

Question 1:
How important is it to have your own dedicated SSL certificate vs. using the free shared SSL certificate? Have any of you guys noticed a loss in customers or orders or any negative side effects at all from using the free shared SSL certificate?

Question 2:
What are some good places to buy SSL certificates and what's a fair price? I've contacted Verisign and their prices are beyond my budget.

Thanks.

P.S. My apologies if these questions have been asked and answered before.

For your first question answer I will suggest you to refer this article

To compare SSL certificate prices you should directly contact different web hosts.

Presently I use Go Daddy. I used Comodo in the past and Thawte way back (but their prices are rediculously high).

If you're serious getting padlock you should get a dedicated ssl. There are Rapidssl's which go for around $10-$15/year at most of the resellers.

Hope this helps.
