You can use the selfssl, that comes free for IIS to generate a certificate, but your users always get nasty messages, cause the certificate is a homemade one, if you can afford to pay like 100$, then i will strongly recommend you to get the instantssl from godaddy. It works like a charm.

I am assuming its pretty straight forward after i purchase the cert from godaddy, just install in under my default web sites in IIS correct.

it's so easy and headache free. They will send you the certificate in file format, all you have to do is to right click the website, properties, directory security, server certificate and install. Remember, you can use the certificate for one website only and not all the websites, make sure to use the correct name of the website when you order the certificate.for example, if you are using www.mydomain.com to access the website, then you will need to provide that name, later on if you decide to use www.mydomain.net it will not work. But, if you absolutely need to use multiple names for the same website, then you can get a special certificate from go daddy that combines multiple domain names.
Regards.
