Places to Get SSL Certs?

I'm going to work on adding SSL to most/all of my websites and I'm curious to know as to what place might be the best place to get them from.

I already have a couple of certs, but what other places are there? I know NameCheap, GoDaddy are resellers for Comodo, RapidSSL as well as some others.

I'd recommend SSLs.com. It is run by Namecheap, but the site is dedicated to SSL and has better prices than the ones listed on Namecheap. They also give multi-year and bulk discounts, which would be good since you're securing multiple sites. Here is the page for their cheapest certs, the Comodo PositiveSSL series.

@Mun I use the same certificate (PositiveSSL) on, for instance, sha1.in, and it works fine on Firefox on Ubuntu 14.04. I'm pretty sure the reason your sites aren't authenticating is that you're forgetting the intermediary certificate. It should have been sent with your main certificate (probably has an extension of .ca-bundle), and it should be uploaded along with it and referenced with Apache's SSLCertificateChainFile (or your web server's equivalent).

I purchase my SSL from gogetssl.com

That is the thing I am using the intermediary certificate.

They're $8.95 for 1 yr Positive SSL, $4.99 if you buy a 5 year :

Cheaper: https://cheapsslsecurity.com/  $5.99 for 1 yr, $4.80 for 5 yr.  mini review: I've used them, no problems

I use GoGetSSL for all of my regular (i.e. non-wildcard) SSL purchases, usually can get a Comodo cert for around $4.
