Let's face it: MediaTemple is a great hosting solution, but it doesn't come cheap - and that goes for their "add-on" product offerings as well, which includes SSL certificates. Purchasing an SSL certificate directly from MediaTemple for one of your domains will cost you - or your client - $75 US dollars a year! And that's on top of their already steep monthly hosting fees.
Instead, installing and using a third-party SSL certificate with MediaTemple is a straightforward process that can be completed in a few steps, and will save you a TON of cost up front! In this guide, I'll walk you through the process of how to install a third-party SSL certificate on your MediaTemple hosting account, and show you some of my favourite 3rd party websites to purchase SSL certificates from, at much more affordable prices.
