What is the difference between purchasing from a reseller or from the Original source?

The only difference is the price, nothing less or more. If you buy from a reseller you save money and the reseller make a small profit. Your registration details will be send through API or direct to the SSL company and you will get an approver e-mail from him, not from reseller. When the approvement is done you will get your cert.

[B]What is an EV (Extended Validation) certificate?[/B]

 An EV certificate is a new type of certificate that is designed to prevent phishing attacks. It requires extended validation of your business and authorization to order the certificate and can take a few days to a few weeks to receive. It provides even greater assurance to customers than high assurance certificates by making the address bar turn green. Learn more about [URL="http://www.sslshopper.com/cheapest-ev-ssl-certificates.html"]EV Certificates[/URL] and compare the cheapest ones.

I agree with a few of the posters about this thread being really interesting.

I have two SSL certs for my sites. One is from Comodo for like, $80 per year and the other is from GoDaddy for like $30 per year.

Personally I see no difference in the certs. I do agree with Jesse about the EV cert and it having the Green Bar thing, but I think that is just marketing.

I kind of look at what my family and friends do and how they shop. None of them understand SSL or look for any kind of seal. They have no clue to what any of it means nor do they care.

My family and friends are about your average online shoppers. They know how to find what they want and are able to price compare. Once to a shop they like with the prices they are willing to pay, they are all capable of entering in their credit card numbers and completeing the sale.

The way I see it, my friends and family are they same type of people that would be shopping on my site. Because of this, I don't plan on upgrading to the EV cert or anything fancy anytime soon.

I could be wrong, I don't know. I do know that Jesse runs a succesful online business so it is kind of hard for me to dissagree with him, but at this point with my business, I think I am ok.

Brandon you have said it all very well - except your family is somewhat advanced in that they can price compare.

Also your $30 cert. Is quite expensive around double what you should be paying.

The Go Daddy one is actually a cert that covers 5 domains. I forget what it is called, but it works well.

In that case it sounds like a bargain as you would have to pay around $50 or so to get 5 single domain certs.

Dragondf,

I think that you may find some limitations with the free certs in terms of browsers.

If something seems to good to be true it usually is.

I look for a single root SSL certificate such as RapidSSL. Although some say chained certs are better i do not know.

Currently a normal price is around US (not Euros) $13.95 or $10 per year when you buy 5 years.

I will not say where to shop for them as this is Indy's thread and hopefully she will soon have a good price for CS cart which I assume will be lower.

Noman has special sources and probably pays much less.

I found this - I do not know if it is true:


"AlphaSSL is owned by GlobalSign, the second oldest Certificate Authority (CA) next to VeriSign. As they are the second oldest CA, their SSL certificates are recognized by 99% of all web browsers.

AlphaSSL certificates are chained certificates. This means they provide the same level of acceptance but with a higher level of security than single-root certificates such as RapidSSL. In fact, Paypal uses a chained certificate for their own website.


Benefits:
•Provides more security than single-root certificates at a lower cost! Chained SSL certificates are more secure than single-root certificates since installing an intermediate certificate keeps the top root certificate secure. It is important to keep the root certificate secure since the security of any SSL certificate depends solely on the root certificate.
•Covers both 'versions' of your domain with one SSL certificate. Example: Secures both https://www.yourdomain.com and https://yourdomain.com.
•Provides up to 256-bit encryption for your website.
•Works with more micro/cell phone browsers than RapidSSL.


Disadvantages:
•Is a little more difficult to install than RapidSSL."

I found this very interesting:

"AlphaSSL covers both the www and non-www version of your website. Example: https://www.yourdomain.com and https://yourdomain.com can be secured with 1 AlphaSSL certificate while securing these 2 hosts requires 2 RapidSSL certificates."

Version 4.9.2

That's right, but I would like to see a webmaster or web designer who will say to his clients: no problem, your site is accessible on the web with both addresses; with- and without www :D

Hello Traveler,

But if you are talking about CHAINED certificates...

When I show the table ...
http://www.sslshoppe...rtificates.html

Uses Chain Certificates Yes

So, if this is a problem (be or not chained) this FREE one is Chained.

One thing that you said and I think it is true is about BROWSER SUPPORT:

Browser Compatibility Supported on most major browsers (new versions of IE, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome)

So, this is a problem. You will not pay for it, but your costumers will not be sending encrypted data.


I have just asked DreamHost and they answered me that they uses a Comodo Certificate: "offer the InstantSSL certificate" (just the certificate, nothing else)

http://www.instantss...instantssl.html

But if it has not "HackerGuardian Vulnerability Scan" or and others.. for me it is not InstantSSL but just:
Essential SSL http://www.instantss...sentialssl.html

I don't know how the server treat it (maybe a configuration) but in my case, if I digit WWW. in my website page (address bar) it will remove "www." and it will be just https://DOMAIN...

Maybe this can change from each server.

I just purchased an EV SSL for the business; it's becoming more apparent that mature (35+) will only purchase when they see visual indicators on the website they are purchasing from.

Considering that the Blue/Green bar is becoming increasingly considered the "security" measure it's straight forward and without doubt for them to purchase then and there.


So.... Is this how you get the green bar at the top of IE? I have a domain validated SSL, if I opted for the more expensive one (these befuddle me, so I know them as the shared (free), $50 and $100), would the bar at the top change color?
