Any certificate will give good security, the difference is how many
end-user software applications will automatically trust the certificate.
For a personal or small group server, a self-signed certificate is
great. Just tell the small group to add your self-signed snakeoil
certificate to their "trusted" list.
For a business where you want the certificate to work automatically
with most client software, most of the low-cost CAs will be fine
(not the free ones). I've used rapidsslonline, godaddy, and some
other one I can't think of right now.
If this is a commercial site, you may need an expensive certificate
from the big guys -- not because it provides better security, but
because it may be useful for your marketing.
So in the end, there is no single best.
