Not sure if you care, but part of the reason they are cheap is the
substandard cert they sell you. GoDaddy doesn't have access to a Root
cert, but only a cert signed by a common cert. They use their cert in
turn to sign yours. The only problem this causes is the requirement to
add their cert as an Intermediate certificate for browsers to work.
Not really a big deal, but it isn't standard.
Thawte sells some fast certs with a real Root CA as low as $99.
