    SSL Certificate

    Hi guys,

    I need a cheap (or free) SSL Certificate for our SIMS Learning Gateway server. Anyone got any good recommendations.

    I can't seem to get any of the links in some of the old threads on this to work.

    Thanks.

    Single domain ssl certs are $16.49 at godaddy.com at the mo

    If you need more than one, then the second is half of that too...

    I looked at StartSSL and got an e-mail back from them basically saying the free Cert is for personal use. I tried GoDaddy from a google search and couldn't get the website to open - I kept getting a redirect to 'rsssearch', strange. That said your link seems to work Domino so I'll give it another gander now.

    It's not the cheapest for a single domain, but DigiCert makes things really easy for me. Also, they have a wildcard certificate that's valid for all my hosts/subdomains. I bought one and use it for webmail, intranet, our main web site, etc.

    £85 for 5years is not bad and they accept cheques. GoDaddy looks like a winner! thanks guys.

    StartSSL are excellent. You verify you, not the site, for a yearly fee, and then you can issue unlimited certificates, either with alt-subject names or wildcards, through the lifetime of your subscription (when I signed up it was £20 to get the personal certification and then a further £20 to verify your organisation, in this case a school).

    If you can get a StartSSL cert, get it. It's free, and the StartCom CA is supported by MS.
    Otherwise, Buy GeoTrust® and VeriSign® SSL Certificates At Cheaper Prices. RapidSSL® From £13.40 - Free Trial Available (UK) is a good one. They support getting SSL certs for bla.school.lea.sch.uk

    O and the rapid SSL certs are £13.40 atm

    I've started using GlobeSSL - £15.98 for 2 years(with discount code 'Saleoff'($4 discount)).

    They are having some technical issues at the moment though... as I found out when I ordered a new one for our webmail subdomain argh! it worked perfectly when I ordered one for out RD Gateway subdomain back in april.

    I previously ordered from Godaddy but they've hiked up the price upon renewal.
