I have an IIS server.
I want to install an SSL certificate on it so that I can allow https connections.
I could self-certify. But then my users would get a little pop-up box saying that they have not chosen to trust BRICKER INC. Heartbreaking, is it not? Everyone should trust me. But I digress.
SO off I go to check out Verisign. They want $349 for a 1-year certificate. Hmm. OK.
Then I check out Thawte. They want $199 for a 1-year certificate.
Both of those companies are installed automatically in IE; their certificates are trusted by everyone.
So my question is… if the first two companies I check have such a difference in price, what’s the CHEAPEST… er, the least expensive company on the list?
And why such a difference in prices?
