    I haven't bought any SSL certificate from Hostgator but it probably makes no difference where you get it from. An SSL certificate is an SSL certificate. If you don't like Hostgator, you can buy from another company.

    I havent. I used to own a site in the past, and i got my SSL certificate from Verisign and Comodo. Easy installation - especially if you dont know anything about servers, ftp, certificates, and internet information services (IIS). But it doesn't matter if you get the SSL cert from Hostgator. You can get it from any reputable SSL provider. They will help you install it too.

    I don't doubt their credentials. They are good.

    Anybody having their Baby Plan, obtained SSL certificate from them?

    Do you have a specific question about their SSL certificates?

    I'm not really sure how simply knowing if someone else has gotten an SSL from them will do you any good...

    I would NOT suggest using a host for domains, and that includes SSL.
    Use Namecheap instead.

    guys why do you buy ssl certificates from hostgator ? You can get them from Namecheap or Comodo itself for $9 or so..

    * If you need any help in installing or configuring SSL certificates hit me a msg.

    Please don't get a SSL cert from a webhost especially from Hostgator. If can, get it from Namecheap and they're reliable too. Try to get your hosting from a non-EIG host. So that, you will be in much safer position in the future.

    If you are in doubt about using hostgator SSL, then you can purchase from another place, namecheap has affordable SSL certificates and good reputation, I have purchased my SSL from them and had no issues with them or with the SSL certificate at all.

    I used hostgator and taken the SSL from them once. Was easy and no fuss in taking from them.

    They offer free the basic one. Offcourse with Busness Plan.

    I have a baby plan from Hostgator & having 4 sites. To have SSL certificates for 4 sites, Hostgator has advised me to buy SSL for multi domains & that cost 150$ a year.

    For their Business plan they offer one free SSL. I am having 4 sites, so need 4 SSL certificates - hence they are advising me to buy SSL for multidomains.

    Hostgator is not taking SSL certificates. They are taking dedicated IP addresses if they don't have a SSL Certificate.

    There is no need to have a SSL certificate unless your are transferring some kind of sensitive data. A key is passed with the packets of data so only the receiver can open the data. This prevents hackers from siphoning data from your transmission.

    Hostgator must be running low on IP addresses so they are reclaiming IP addresses that do not have a SSL certificate. I believe if you do nothing your site will be given a shared IP address and will work normally.

    I hope this has been helpful,
