I was working for a third party company on a web project for a large tech corporation. We used a GoDaddy SSL certificate and found that this CA was rejected on internal company networks.

The corporation at that time (2 years ago) did not automatically accept GoDaddy as a trusted authority. It was only with much persuasion that our certificate was accepted.

If we'd have used a premium brand such as Thawte there would have been no problem. I'm not sure why the corporation had this policy but maybe the price point of the certificate made them seem less trusted. Just a thought

This is the only real world difference between certificates from GoDaddy and other large CAs I have come across.
