I just got a notice that my SSL certificates were going to expire and it was time to renew at GoDaddy (http://www.godaddy.com).  Not a problem.  Just go to their website and renew the certificate in a few clicks.  Matter of fact, we just renewed a previous certificate a couple weeks ago and it was easy, […]
