REV11 discount code for 15% off the total). My only gripe with them is that their support is based in the USA, so it can take a lot longer to get issues resolved (days instead of hours).
If you want the best of both worlds, you can buy a wildcard certificate from DigiCert which enables you to add SANs to it. I think they are the only company that does this, so will be a bit more expensive than GoDaddy.
Just spoke to GoDaddy (they have a local sydney number, was answered in 10 mins) and was speaking to their USA dept.
Will go for their UCC cert for now, cheers for the discount codes.
also, is there anything to be aware of if I update the cert during office hours. Will Outlook bitch? Will the server need a restart?
Ordered a 5 domains/5 years using the REV11 discount code for 15% off the total, from GoDaddy, with big thanks to Arthur. Total was $300 AUD which is less than a third of the cost of the price of a single cert for a single year from verisign! In the good books today saving them a fair chunk of cash. Also, phoned their support twice today and got straight through (less than 10 mins wait)
Cheers for all the other suggestions too folks, and hopefully this thread will be helpful to others in the same boat too..
I use RAPIDSSL Certificates and they are fairly cheap to be honest I have used godaddy in the past but there verification process seems to be a pain if you are in a school.
whats bad about their verif. process?
the 2 emails I used to sign up with (billing and tech. contact) are the same 2 email addresses listed on our WHOIS not sure if that will make it faster?
What issues did you have?
Comodo SSL Certificates I use
So just looking at getting a UCC cert for Exchange, but would also love to shoehorn it into service for ePortal (internal and external) and my Smoothwall (internal). Is there any harm in just sticking all 9/10 subdomains and aliases in the one UCC and importing that same certificate on the 3 different servers? And if it can be done, when I run the New-ExchangeCertificate command on Exch2007, should I provide all the subdomains I'm buying for, even the non-email (i.e. eportal) subdomains?
Sorry to be a pain!
Id guess so yes.
I used this wizard to help generate the Exchange Shell Command I needed for all my domains:
It says 2010 but it worked fine for my 2007 server
2k7 version of that open in another tab right now and that's what got me wondering - as that's generating the EMS command, does Exchange really need to be told all the eportal stuff? But then, would it hurt if I did?
it needs to be in, as it is used and embedded in the certificate request

Certificate in, working, cheap (& discounted, thanks Arthur), everything seems dandy.
GoDaddy support was fine for me, by the by - the automatic approval malarkey didn't work because it couldn't work out that lincs.sch.uk was the TLD in itself, it thought we owned the domain sch.uk and everything else was a subdomain - but got through to someone on phone support within a few minutes and had it all sorted by e-mail that evening. Dead simple.
