SSL certificate for .sch.uk domain?
So we need a new SSL cert, and my temp replacement over the last year bought one for a ridiculous price (£150 for a 1 year standard SSL cert!).
Does anyone have a recommendation as to where we can get a highly recognised SSL cert cheaply - it isn't handling any financial stuff. In this case it'll be securing a RD Web Access server.
They must be able to handle the whole 'not having an email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org' etc... As we don't use the school domain for email and don't have it set up for it at all.

StartSSL works just fine for us, as does IPSCA with the same conditions. Cheap enough. (free!)

StartSSL is for 'personal only'? I've had an email saying I have to provide my personal residence details, which I'm not going to do. I'll have a look at IPSCA.

I would only use IPSCA if you had to as they have had issues with browsers supporting their certificates.

IPSCA also does not behave correctly with the site.domain.county.sch.uk system. They reckon the domain is county.sch.uk so they try to send an email to the admin contact for that domain...

We have just recently purchased a 5 Year Wildcard Domain SSL Certificate (Single Domain with Unlimited Sub Domains) from GoDaddy ~ £280 + VAT for same reason (RemoteApps, HAP etc)
Domain validation was completed quickly and easily by just uploading a generated file to your Domain Name (e.g. School website)

^ We too use a wildcard cert from GoDaddy - no problems with recognition and decent value too...

I asked a similar question on here a while back. Ended up getting a cert through JANET.

I've just contacted the LEA here to see if they can make the request for us, as that's what JANET say to do.

Not had that issue with either of the products I mentioned. Yes we did have to enter some personal details for StartSSL but not a massive problem for us - same address as the site etc. Wouldn't pay for one.

I had the same issue but the actual cert was correct. When I called them they said it was an automated email system but the actual cert gets created by a human. IPSCA also does not behave correctly with the site.domain.county.sch.uk system. They reckon the domain is county.sch.uk so they try to send an email to the admin contact for that domain...

our IPSCA did the same - failed on email but passed after human intervention.
Not had an issue with modern browsers although older mobiles ones do fail. We added the cert to our early ipads later ones are ok.
