Hostgator private SSL price comparison (as per Aug.2014)

Here I'd like to publish my Hostgator private SSL price comparison. This informations, especially the prices are as per August 2014!

I'm running a website hosted on Hostgator. In my oppinion, a great website hoster!

Now I'd like to extend my site with a SSL certificate to secure my website. Therefore I'd like to have a Hostgator private SSL certificate.

There a two reasons:

1.) Confidential information will only be given and read by the appropriate receiver as he is the only one who can understand it

2.) Google has recently released news that they are boosting the rankings for websites that have been secured with an "SSL Certificate". I'd like my site going to get a boost, otherwise my competitors use this opportunity to jump up in the ranks!

Hostgator therefore offers different hosting packages, some already incluse a private SSL certificate, others don't.

Baby Package 9.95 cost per month (USD) 119.4 cost per year (USD)
dedicated ip address 2.00 cost per month (USD) 24.00 cost per year (USD)
RapidSSL Certificate (Private SSL) 39.95 cost per year (USD) 39.95 cost per year (USD)
TOTAL 183.35 cost per year (USD)

On a Hostgator Baby Package, costs for a private SSL certificate are on USD 183.35 per year

Please keep in mind that an SSL installed on the baby package would still be invoiced $2.00 per month for the dedicated ip address, which is required in addition to the SSL certificate if it is to be installed.

The RapidSSL is FREE with purchase of a Business Plan; $39.95 with a Baby Plan

Business package 14.95 cost per month (USD) 179.4 cost per year (USD)
dedicated ip address 0 cost per month (USD) 0 cost per year (USD)
RapidSSL Certificate (Private SSL) 0 cost per year (USD) 0 cost per year (USD)
TOTAL 179.4 cost per year (USD)

On a Hostgator Business Package, costs for a private SSL certificate are on USD 179.40 per year

You most certainly can Upgrade the package from a Baby to a Business package. To do so simply reply to this ticket with your confirmation of such and we will be happy to Upgrade the package for you immediately. The cost of such is $14.95 per month and will be reflected on your next renewal invoice once the Upgrade is complete.

Seems as I would run cheaper with the Business Package, which already includes a RapidSSL Certificate (Private SSL)

Information by Hostgator Support: The cost for an SSL certificate is not included with the price of a Baby plan. If you are on the Baby Croc plan then you would need to pay an additional $50/year fee for the SSL. There would also be a $24/year fee for the dedicated IP address. If you upgrade to the Business plan then you are able to get the SSL and dedicated IP for a considerably lower price as they are included.
