    Free SSL certificate?

    I've heard schools can get free SSL certificates from a few places.
    Can anyone reccomend where to get a free or low priced one from?
    The certificate will be used for the SSL Login Authentication page on smoothwall for the Public Wifi

    Also can you still get them free if the school is going to be an Academy?

    I have found they are not trusted by all browsers. You will be better off getting a £10 123-reg one.

    Thanks both. I will look into each.
    If I was to purchase from 123-reg is it a domain SSL that I would require for smoothwall SSL authentication page?
