What to look for in an SSL Provider

Every certificate provider has different products, prices, features, and levels of customer satisfaction. You will primarily want to compare the following when choosing a certificate authority:

  • Product features - Does the certificate authority provide a certificate with the features you need? For example, does it cover all the domain names I need (Wildcard, Multi-Domain, etc.). Does it provide Extended Validation, Organization Validation, or just Domain Validation?
  • Support - Does the SSL provider offer quality customer support when you need it? Read our provider reviews to learn about other customers' experiences.
  • Price - Is the certificate within your price range?
