You need to be sure the SSL provider (or CA) is globally trusted in all browsers, meaning you don't get those popups telling your website visitors that the certificate has been issued by an untrusted signer.

Then you have price, support, site seal etc. So it depends on how you compare those things and what matters to you. Some certs are higher priced but come with excellent installation support and also name brand recognition.

There is no "Best" certificate per se, but there are differing types ans validation levels for ssl certs. You have Organization Validated (OV), Domain Validated (DV), Extended Validation (EV), wildcard, ucc (or Exchange), and single domain certificate.

Website security is a top priority when it comes to closing a sale online. It doesn't matter how great the product, offer, or website – if your customer doesn't feel safe providing payment details and sensitive personal information, you'll lose a sale. An SSL Certificate provides your customers with a visible indicator of website security, proof that you are a trustworthy vendor and that their online transaction will be protected. Compare SSL and choose the right SSL Certificate from the right SSL provider!

Make sure that the SSL provider satisfies your cost,demands.Make sure they are legit by doing through reviews about them.Make sure they have a dedicated phone number,mail address and an online identity.Their certificates should work on major browsers,should be recognized and symbols that they use to show their validity (usually indicated by a padlock icon in web browsers, indicated by a green address bar,changing the URL from http:// to https://)should be known to all. If someone satisfies all the above they are regarded as the best SSL Certificate provider. There are several service providers like http://www.thewebpole.com/ssl/ssl-certificates.aspx?ci=1790&prog_id=456994 where the domain is validated,with best encrypting technologies.
