Other than the tacky looking site seal (which I wont be using), what are the cons to using godady's inexpensive 'turbo SSL'?

Would you recommend it?

I don't know about the product you mention, but in my life, except for airplane engines, things that had word "turbo" in their names appeared to be scam ;)

SSL is an SSL is an SSL - there's no need to go with the expensive kind. Most customers are satisfied with the fact that you use an SSL (they don't know and don't care about verisign vs. godaddy vs. anything else).

I agree with - just as long as you have a SSL (https), then you're fine.

I have the $19.95 turbo seal myself. My only problem is that I have to pay $24.95 to my hosting to get it installed because I don't have access to the root file ... *rolls her eyes* Long story.
