    Wildcard SSL Supplier

    Hi

    We are looking to replace our ipsCA Wildcard Certificate with one from a more client supported CA, I have tried the SSL Store (They want either a card payment / Wire Transfer / Cheque in Dollars) and 123 (They want a Card Payment only).

    We are unable to pay by card, just by cheque.

    Can anyone recommend a SSL Reseller which can accept Official School Orders and/or Cheques?

    Many thanks

    We get ours through our Internet Provider; SWGfL who in turn get them from Janet. We get charged 35 for three years. Worth talking to your ISP?

    *EDIT*
    Sorry, just re-read your post, I don't think Janet allow Wildcards.

    Just so you know the cost of the JANET certs has gone up to around 100.

    Try these:

    https://www.thesslstore.co.uk/rapids...-wildcard.aspx

    It says they are 77 per year for a 2 year certificate

    SSL247 accepted a school PO from one of our customers last year, worth a look maybe.

    Digicert is also a good, though not sure if they'll take a PO.

    Additional note - we have a wildcard cert provided by ipsCA that runs out next April. Am I correct in that they no longer exist as a company?

    Thanks anyway. They don't issue to non school domains.

    Rang SSL247 and heres the result:

    123-Wildcard from Global Sign over 3 years: 179.97 (Was told by SSL247 this certificate was not Global Sign but their own)
    The SSL Store Wildcard from Comodo over 3 years: 248.91
    SSL247 Wildcard from Global Sign over 3 years: 1,100
    SSL247 Wildacard from Geotrust over 4 years (4 years for the price of 3): 785

    They dont seem to...browsing to http://www.ipsca.com brings up a Go Daddy parked page, but browsing to Home still brings up a page for them saying that they no longer issue certificates.

    We (EduGeek) use AlphaSSL Wildcard Certificate from ProntoSSL as they are a UK company and the price for us is very fair. It may be worth dropping them a mail about invoice billing but at least they are UK.
    I am just renewing now and you get a 20% discount if you renew early which is nice, they even emailed to ask if I had any problems as I stopped the order at the CSR point as I had lost my previous CSR.

    Just enquired today through SWGfL on the pricing of certificates; was informed the price is still 35 per certificate for 3 years.
