Secure Server prices
Posted on 1998-07-15
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.
