    I'm first off assuming that you have one of the managed wordpress plans that includes the SSL - that being said, if you have a domain that is not in your GoDaddy account, you should receive an email (and can find this in the site settings) a string to create a TXT DNS record that can be used to validate the SSL certificate and once done it will install the certificate for you.
