    Cheap Wildcard SSL Certificate

    Hey!

    I know this question gets asked all the time, but the other threads contain outdated information/links and/or offers.

    So; where's the best place to get a wildcard SSL certificate?

    Thank you.

    • https://www.gogetssl.com/ I think it was around £35 + tax for a GGSSL wildcard (Which is acutally comodo anyway) last time I looked.

      no, few thread still up to date, per pricing.

      Let's bet which dot-name will collapse first ;)

    • @Akito Actually 3 CHF? https://sinavps.ch/


      Well CHF is roughly equal to USD but a bit bigger now lol

    • Amazing how cheap SSL became after "let's encrypt" was announced.. or were they always this cheap? (wildcard I mean)

      No, SingleHop has had a partnership with Verisign for a while. VPS providers are just reselling SSL certificates meant for their network.

      -

      AlphaSSL certificates will provide you with 2048 bit root strength and 256 bit encryption strength. Normally retails at $149/yr

      Eh? I thought the "root strength" depends on the private key and the "encryption strength" on the used ciphers? Can't use CSR with hmb? Could anyone enlighten me? Thanks. :)

      [have only used self signed certificates so far]

      As for the root strength, I would refer to the stack exchange article. This is a claim also made by AlphaSSL themselves on their website.

      You can use (and in fact we require) a CSR if you order an SSL from us.

      Well they have to invent some smart-sounding b/s to justify the ridiculous price tag. As if 2048 is somehow worth to pay more for, than (some other value everyone else uses), despite nobody using anything less than 2048 for a long time now.

      I still spend around $80 to buy wildcard at ssls. How can the price be so different? Does their $4.99 certs support all browsers? What's the renewal price?

      Because a cert is just a couple of kilobytes and a few seconds of crypto computation time on a server. It's basically free to make, and you can make as much as you want at no extra cost.

      Nowadays I can get both normal and wildcards for free. And yes, it's trusted (at least mine - not sure if the one you mentioned is the same type) - the site in my signature uses one of them.

      I should use the term "regular".

    • @TheOnlyDK said:

      It's a SH cert, but it looks that almost everyone who is selling wildcards at <$15 just resells them. So no reason to go through potentially several intermediaries if you know the source and don't want all of them to know your CRT data (yes, it's available to them - and it's a security risk).

      True (only for 360 days or so though, but 2 years certificate validity), but:

      • They require a uncensored scan of your passport
      • They require a recent, uncensored utility bill
      • They require your address & phonenumber
      • They keep all that data for 7 years
      • They're allowed to ask for even more, which they'll do if you're unlucky

      They're located in Israel. Nice and friendly guys, for sure, but I had concerns about identity theft, as giving out all that data is... kinda insane.

      And for everyone wondering why he/she is paying that much more for his certificates: You've just discovered the certificate mafia. The only thing which some more expensive certificates offer is a higher insurance value.

      I sent them a photo of the front of my driver's license and an edited utility bill that only showed my address and the "letterhead".

      They will need a phone number to call and verify it's you.

      It was worth it to me. I ended up getting two wildcard certs, but one of them has a lot of domains on it.

      I don't trust people reselling SingleHop certs outside of their terms. I'm pretty happy with GoGetSSL's own branded wildcard, which is just Comodo marked down a little. It's $42 for a reseller, which anyone can be you just have to sign up for.

    • Just spoke directly with strategic manager of AlphaSSL, he told quite interesting information regarding super cheap AlphaSSL Wildcards. They have few large hosting providers that have bundle contracts, but they are not allowed to re-sell them outside own servers.

      AlphaSSL will find out the SSL is being misused and will revoke them. If the company is not obtaining the certificates this way.

      So please, be careful, as your certs can be revoked, and probably no refund will be....

      This has been discussed before, yes it is possible for GlobalSign to revoke those certs, but why would they do that? It would cost them more to revoke than to issue more certs. Can I understand that you posted here just because this "pricing" has affected your sales?
