No such like. StartSSL want to charge me $59 to check my identify and another $59 to check my organisation, and I need to get County to sign something and send it off saying that I am responsible for school.county.sch.uk

Necrothread We asked nicely and StartSSL put ours (northants.sch.uk) in the list. However, we're looking at wildcards now to cover us for the future and StartSSL looks less and less promising as time goes on. In fact, as it's ordering page gives us an SSL error and doesn't load (lol?) we've decided to give it a well deserved wide berth and are looking to pay instead. Waiting for a reply from GoDaddy but perhaps more input would be appreciated.

Do you absolutely have to use the .sch.uk domain? A cheaper option might be to simply get a .co.uk domain for the school and use a free cert from StartSSL for it. CS New Media will register you a .co.uk for £9 for 2 years.

As said, I have no intention of using StartSSL. Although we have done in the past, it looks beyond dodgy now.
It would be rather an upheaval to swap domain names at this point.

That's fair enough, I was thinking more about new deployments I suppose. Curious about what you;'e seeing with the StartSSL pages, I redid our certs just over a week ago and it was fine for me.

Ditto. Well, we got it via our local authority from JANET (they're supposed to service geographical area, and not just state schools from what I have been told).

Looks like we're going GoDaddy. JANET refused to speak to us pretty much - the impression I got was they're rather in the dark ages. (May have misunderstood their email). If it's not from an RBC or LA they're not interested. LA, here? No check. RBC? No check. Have to be part of an organisation - check, well, not as far as they're concerned. Not to worry.
For startSSL, their login page on any browser is showing SSL errors It looks like they're going under some changes, they certainly need some.

GoGetSSL are cheaper than GoDaddy for wildcard certificates.

Doesn't look bad, although the level of English on that page means I'm disappointed the language selection tool at the top doesn't say "Engrish". I guess I'm too darn picky

Started to use Namecheap since GoDaddy upped their pricing.

we bought a comodo intranet ssl cert from the sslstore however i've just noticed trying to create it that :
This certificate covers only https://name-of-site.com (Non www) We recommend to generate CSR for https://www.name-of-site.com so it works for both https://www.name-of-site.com (www) and https://name-of-site.com(Non www)
and the squid server I need it for is wpad.name-of-site.lancs.sch.uk
I guess that's not going to work then

Went with Namecheap in the end. Nice and easy, blew StartSSL out of the water for non-stupid questions (and the site actually works).
Annoyed me a little how resellers for products can resell them for vastly less. For instance, we got the same Comodo product from Namecheap for well under 50 quid for 5 years. From Comodo directly, they quoted just under that per year. It's all worth it according to Comodo of course, because you get direct support from them (sigh. It's an SSL certificate, not a website)

I use Namecheap for most of my domain names (the others are with Gandi). I forgot they did certificates too.
Their website seems a lot of more straightforward than GoDaddy's too!

Godaddy's site couldn't make it's mind up if it was in the States, UK or Delhi. Different parts of it's site also gave different prices for the same product. Not cheap either.
