Renewing Godaddy SSL certificates

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.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

You can sign up for a new Godday account and get the discount.  Purchase your SSL credit. Then at any point you wish, you can request the new certificate and install, as per the instructions below.  The server doesn't care about the account with Godaddy at all, it and Godaddy are only concerned with the contents of the CSR.
