You can get a RapidSSL certificate (single root which is easier to
install) from Namecheap for $10.95 a year.

Or, you can get a free SSL certificate, with Intermediate
certificates, which are a little harder to install, from StartSSL.
I got one of those.

Each site needs an SSL certificate and a Dedicated IP address.
