Here is a list of recommended SSL providers:
For one, GoDaddy has a name that people recognize (thanks to good branding). People are likely to put more trust into a name they know. They also offer solutions on the cheaper side of the spectrum.
Verisign is another well-trusted name. In fact, they're probably the most trusted in the game and trust can go a long way, but they are known to be a bit more expensive.
Opinions at SSL Shopper about Comodo range from great to terrible, but if you dig deep enough, you can probaby find a similar range for everybody else too. Comodo does offer cheap solutions.
Digicert isn't the cheapest, but there seems to be overwhelming enthusiasm about them, particularly in the areas of customer service and support.
Thwate is also not on the cheap side, but much like VeriSign, and as the comapny's slogan says, "It's a trust thing". It's a popular one and is seen often and people will associate it with security.
Your options are certainly not limited to these five choices. You may find another one entirely to be way better than the rest. If so, we'd love to hear about it.
