Paid SSL gives you assurance in case there is a loss caused. Free SSL doesn't . It just encrypt .

I think a paid ssl certificate gives you more security then a free ssl certificate.
Paid ssl certificate has more features then a free one and paid ssl certificate is more trusted then free ssl when we make payments and anything something like that.

Free SSL provides just like a paid one, but there is very small difference, Here is why:

Premium certificates are signed and issued by the leading trustable certificate authorities (CAs). You get it straight from the certification authority (CAs) website, or you could buy handily from corporations.

Some benefits of Paid SSL certificates are:

Well Recognised.
More Choice.
Longer Renewals.
All Server Compatibility, etc.

Free ones dont give you the validation as you get with paid ones

SSL Certificates are a must have feature on your blogs but free and paid totally depends on the amount of data a user is pushing on your website.

What do you mean by " amount of data a user is pushing on your website."?

I meant to say, if your website require just the email, name and basic stuffs or you are running a ecommerce website, which require sensitive information like credit card details.

Correct if site is doing payment processing or requiring credit card details, paid SSL is must.

Guys dont forget now Google and Mozilla require all sites to have an SSL cert or they mark sites as insecure even if you dont take payments.

I'm guessing insurance-wise, paid SSL certs are reliable.

There's absolutely no other benefit to using paid SSLs against free SSLs, unless of course you're after EV.

you need to check a site using a Fee SSL and a site using a paid SSl and you will see a difference.
A paid SSL gives you Validation which a free SSL Does not.
