SSL Certificate Reviews

An SSL certificate provider (certificate authority) issues digital certificates to organizations or individuals after verifying their identity. These SSL Certificate Reviews can help you choose one SSL certificate provider over another. Each SSL certificate provider has different products, prices, certificate features, and levels of customer satisfaction. In order to help you separate the wheat from the chaff, you can read authentic SSL reviews for each of the major certificate providers and decide who to trust with your SSL certificate needs.

The SSL certificate reviews cover customer support, ease of managing SSL certificates, as well as certificate issuance speed and overall customer satisfaction. To read the SSL reviews, just click on the provider below. You can compare SSL with our SSL Wizard to find the best deal from all providers. From there, you can see each SSL provider's average rating based on the SSL certificate reviews they have received. If you have bought a certificate from one of the providers, please write an SSL review so that others know what to expect.

Are the SSL certificate reviews real or fake?

Since anyone can post a review, some have wondered whether the SSL reviews are really authentic. We do everything possible to ensure that fake reviews (yes, we have received some) are screened out before being published. Many of the reviews include a website where you can verify the SSL certificate in use, allowing you to personally verify that a real customer is behind the review.

What does a certificate authority do?

A certificate authority verifies an entity's credentials and, essentially, certifies that they are who they say they are. Once an entity's information has been verified, the certificate authority will sign it's public key using the CA's private key. Because all major certificate authorities have "root certificates" in web browsers, the entity's certificate will be linked through a "chain of trust" and the web browser will recognize it as a trusted certificate. Basically, web browser developers are saying "We trust this certificate authority and they say that this is the entity's public key so, if we use it, we know we are talking to the right entity."
