If I use a Godaddy SSL Certificate on one of my servers for secure application access could this be affected by the Heartbleed bug?

If I use a godaddy certificate to secure a website or application, do I need to rekey the certificate to ensure I'm not affected by the Heartbleed bug?  I've been reading numerous articles, a lot of which contradict each other.  Thanks.

Probably the best reference to go by is GoDaddy's site itself.

I've read that.  So if I have 100 different SSL Certificates from godaddy, it sound like they are recommending to rekey all of them.  Is this what you gather from that?

If they are existing certs and housing the sites somewhere else (not hosted by GoDaddy or at a shared location) then yes that is what I get from reading their instructions.
