Secure Server prices

Hi there,

I'm intersted in setting up a secure server to process credit card transaction for a local inn and restaurant.  The only use of this would be to confirm reservations, and it will not be used heavily (less than 5 times per week on average).  I can implement the server using Apache (or one of its varients) on a linux server, IIS 1, 3, or 4 on an NT box, or Netscape server on a Novell box.  The major problem is getting the Server ID.  I see that VeriSign is charging $349 per year for this service, which is unacceptable to my client.  Is there any cheaper service out there that I can use, or another way that would be cheaper to do a secure server.  I'm hoping that I can find something under $150 if possible.

Thanks.

yinon,

We provided our customers with a secure server option recently and also found that Verisign was too expensive.  In the end we went for Thawte who only charge us $200 a year.  I don't think that there is a cheaper option than this.

I also recently found a good source for webspace and secure hosting at just $25/month it gives you 150MB of secure space, ODBC support, email address, domain name etc. (Not much it doesn't give). It is at:

Hope that helps.

Trevor.

Thanks -- Great responce.  I looked at Thwarte's web page, which is located at www.thware.com for anybody who's interested, andit looks like the certificate will cost $125 for the first year and $100 for each annual renewal.  This company is based in South Africa, and requires several proofs of identity to sign up.

yinon,

Glad I could be of help. Glad you corrected me on the price.  You're right it is $125, we also bought a digital signing cert from them as well which must be where I got mixed up with the prices.
