Hosting with SSL certificate

Discussion in 'Web Hosting' started by Weirfire, Jan 28, 2005.

    I need hosting which provides an SSL certificate.

    I'm not fussed about massive bandwidth per month or a huge amount of webspace but so far my best deal has been;

    2GB transfer
    SSL certificate
    All the usual stuff like cpanel, squirrel mail, web stats
    SEMrush
    For £19.99 a year + £39.99 a year for the SSL certificate

    I already have hosting so I would also be interested in information on the price of just the SSL certificate.

    Check out GeoTrust. That's who I get my certs from. They are the least expensive that I know of. Some places like rackshack give away free ones or deep discounts to new customers. (don't know if that deal is going on now, but it was about 6 months ago).

    I got my cert in about 10 minutes, but it auto-dialed my house for verification. I don't know if they'll dial the UK.

    Are they really as much as $169? Are there no cheaper deals than this?

    Wow. It was $69 when I last bought one! Check out webhostingtalk.com That board has a lot more activity around this subject, and I'd just be googling to get you more info.

    I had an e-commerce site hosted on a site where you could use their certificate. Their business pkg if paid yearly cost right at $20 per month. Might you be able to use your host's certificate?

    Thanks guys. That's going to save me a fortune... :)

    Are there any major disadvantages of getting a non branded SSL certificate?

    Ok the EV1Servers $9.95 won't get back to you at all if you have any queries.

    I've found another site http://www.bright-byte.com/ssl/ which beats all GeoTrust prices for the same thing. It's $25 for the StarterSSL though.

    Will let you know my progress with them.

    The only thing you need to be concerned with is whether or not the certificate will auto-validate with the major browsers.

    I could generate my own SSL cert - but it would pop an error message that says "do you want to trust this bozo? He didn't want to pay for a certificate."

    That should be listed in the FAQ of anybody who sells SSL Certs. If not, contact the company and ask. If they say the user has to "install the certificate" or anything like that, it means that their certificate is no better than one you would self-generate.

    I just need an https page for the HSBC server to return data to. It's not even for sending secure credit card transactions apparently. I'll find out more about it when I start digging into their system :(

    I got mine from godaddy for $29.95. I've never seen anything cheaper than that. ;)
