I would like to install an SSL cert on my WP site. However, godaddy is charging $70 and i can get one elsewhere for $10. Can I use a third party SSL cert with a godaddy hosted wordpress site?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is what I would like to do. For a personal wordpress site I would prefer not to spend $70 on an SSL each year. On support yesterday I was told I can do this with my managed wordpress but from searching here it looks like I can not.... 😞
Please is there a way to get past this.
I have 4 ssl certs from namecheap. I was able to install all of mine on GoDaddy. Only the ecommerce ssl is not working with my Woocommerce website. For the most part, just follow the directions and you should be fine.
Are you using Managed Wordpress? This is completely ridiculous that Godaddy wants $70 when it can be purchased elsewhere for a fraction of the price.
I have the same issue, 4 sites hosted on Godaddy Wordpress and they want £55 ($70) for each SSL certificate when I can buy them for £5 each.
£220 or £20.... that is some difference!
