Choosing an SSL certificate supplier

Posted November 5, 2014 7.7k views

I need to set up a secure https site, and am currently using a self-signed certificate, which obviously brings up warnings.

I’m now finding it really hard to locate the most appropriate SSL certificate supplier.

I just need something very basic, but most importantly seamless for users so accepted in all modern browsers - there seem to be a bewildering array of options and prices… any guidance would be welcome, before The end of this week!

Does DigitalOcean recommend anyone?

If you are looking for a low cost solution you cant go wrong with a Comodo PositiveSSL. I have become a loyal NameCheap customer. Love the 24/7 support, and prices are very reasonable on all their services. A PositiveSSL will run you $9 (or less for multi-year) with NameCheap. I have seen them as low as $6 or so through wholesale providers.

  • If you didn’t know, Comodo is a very widely accepted Certificate Authority. I have never had a Comodo certificate give me any problems, regardless of the browser or platform.

Still trying with StartSSL. Dunno if I’m missing something, but I just can’t get past the first step. My post to the StartSSL forum here got no replies, and… I’m already running too late on this project. Any further help appreciated.
