I've got a 24 month Godaddy standard single certificate that's about to expire for a custiomer.
They want to renew for 5 years and I'm being quoted a discounted rate of £220 for this, but if I was a "new" customer I would pay £45 (£8.99 a year).
I'm not sure how much of a loss leader the sign up charge is for Godaddy but I would suspect not much otherwise they would only offer a 12 month option.
I appreciate the "renewal" would not be seamless and it would be down for a few days, but if I waited for the existing one to expire before taking out a new one, would Godaddy block this? Has anyone done this? With other Godaddy renewals I've just paid what they requested, but if I can save my clients a reasonable amount of money I will try.
