With a free SSL you Donít get an SSL badge or validity checks. if you are running a commercial website and canít or wonít purchase an SSL then you have no business sense and donít care about securing customers details.
Clicking on the padlock will tell anyone who issued the SSL and from that info it is easy to find if itís free or paid.
All free SSLs do is make it far easier for fraudsters to dupe people into thinking they are on a genuine website and parting with their money.

You made me start thinking and doing some research. Maybe I should get a paid for SSL certificate. So I clicked on PowerSSL in your signature.

The issue is my domain powerssl.co.uk is on my server, but is points via A record to a white label storefront from The SSL Store, so SSL cert issued to the domain through CSR on my server fails as the actual website is not on my server, so everything has to go to The SSL Store Techs to correct this.

I would venture to guess that 99.9% of consumers never research SSL certificates of the sites they frequent. I don't see this as affecting conversions in any appreciable fashion.

paid is always better than free, but if the OP is asking which type of SSL is best

DV
OV
EV

well this would depend on 2 factors

1) What is your website about (blog,commercial, ecommerce etc.)
2) How deep is your pocket as prices range for $10 to a few hundred dollars

In respect to the total volume of web traffic passing through, I'd say it's probably closer to 99.999999999999%.

0.01% of people looking into it is a colossal amount of people even thinking about it, much less researching.
