SSL certificate options
Posted on 2009-06-30
Hello, just a basic question regarding SSL certificate options. It looks like there are a ton of vendors out there, and not a huge amount of difference between the certificates. My hosting company has a relationship with Trustwave, where I can get a certificate for $89 per year. I know I can go much cheaper with GoDaddy or others, but I don't mind paying the extra $$. But the question I have is, what is the downside with going with a lesser-known SSL certificate vendor from a user perspective? When I look at certificate authorities on my FireFox browser, Trustwave is not listed but GoDaddy, Thawte, Verisign, etc. are. Does that mean I (and other users) would get a popup window/warning message when I went to a site secured by Trustwave?
