Good SSL Certificate for a reasonable price?

Question

Jose_49    1,177

Sup people! I'm building a web app (Won't have more than 1,000 users in the following 2 years). It's the first time I'll be using SSL and wanted to know what good one I can find for a reasonable price. I'll be using it mostly for authentication.

You can get a PositiveSSL from Comodo reseller (Namecheap is good) for a couple of dollars.

PositiveSSL is about $9/year. It's mostly for blogs or smaller webpages, so this would be ideal for you it seems. We use Comodo for our SSL certificates for my company (Enterprise level), and have zero complaints.

My vote is for http://digicert.com

 

Another vote for DigiCert. While not the cheap option the OP is probably looking for I use DigiCert for all my stuff, both personal and business. Lots of great features and tools available at a pretty reasonable price (as far as enterprise SSL goes anyways).

I would wait for Let's Encrypt, as mentioned above.

 

 

You can get a free SSL certificate right now at StartSSL.

Use chrome + translate, I wouldn't use it for anything mission critical or a site that takes any kind of payment info but they do issue real certificates and they seem to be trusted ok on most modern browsers.

Using one on my seafile server and a couple other things just to stop the annoying cert errors that you'd get with self signed
