I am on the search to ditch godaddy and move to another hosting company that does not charge an arm and a leg for ssl.  What hosting service does everyone else use?  Looking for some recommendations.

I use HostGator and a Wordpress template. 

Only had one problem with them over the last 8 years or so.  They moved me to a new server and then I had a problem with going back from one page to a previous one.  Their tech support wasn't able to help me find the problem and suggested I start from new and rebuild the page.  I went thru the site and thought I found the issue.  After having a web savvy former coworker look he confirmed my thought.   When you hit the "Back" arrow, it would send you to a "page not found " page.  Changed the link and no problems since.

SSL certification - what is it and why is it important, please.

If you plan on selling off your website its important.  Even if you use a third party to complete the transaction your shopping cart program is going to collect some info from the customer like name and address.  That and google gives priority to sites that have it over unsecured sites.

I have been very happy with Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

At $9.95/minth they aren't the cheapest out there but they offer a lot of things for that. I have four domains and 3 websites with them. One of the domains (soon to be two) just bounces the user into another one.

SSL is included.

(Edited to add) And the few times I have had an issue with something or the other, their customer service is top notch. You talk to a real person about your problem, on your domain, not some hypothetical "this is what usually causes this issue..."
