I have a Google calendar embedded on a website page, and I also embed that page on Facebook. Facebook says that beginning October 1, 2011 they will require an https connection (in addition to the http) for each URL reference.

I have zero need for a secure connection for this application, but I do want to continue this arrangement. Can you please suggest the most simple, low cost way for me to handle this?

Thank you.

The cheapest way that you can do this would be to use the shared ssl certificate we provide. Otherwise, there are CA's that provide free certificates for example http://www.sslshopper.com/article-free-ssl-certificates-from-a-free-certificate-authority.html. You could also use the search results that came up for me to choose one that fits better http://www.google.com/search?q=free+ssl+certificate+providers. The only thing would be that if you want to use your own certificate, you will need to purchase a dedicated IP, which costs $5.00 per month.

Hope that helps.
