If it is a single root certificate, it will be easier to install. If
it has an Intermediate certificate (chained) it's a little harder to
install. You must have a Dedicated IP address for that domain. You can
get a RapidSSL from Namecheap.com (single root) for $10.95 for one
year. I got a free StartSSL (chained) certificate. I believe you
should only have the sub domain encrypted, because pages that are
encrypted are a little slower.
