Help me buy the right SSL Please
I usually just buy the cheapest SSL, $4.95 a year and that works fine for me with a single domain. But, I would like to buy an SSL for a .com site with a .co.uk redirect (it has a significant audience in the UK as well as the US). What would be the right kind of SSL to buy so that the .co.uk domain doesn't set off errors in Google etc?
Check out Lets Encrypt!
Let's Encrypt is fine, or StartSSL, or wosign.
All certificates will work fine, or you could get a single (free) letsencrypt certificate with 2 domains in a single certificate. (-d website.co.uk -d website.com -d www.website.com -d www.website.co.uk).
StartSSL/WoSign/any other SSL is comparatively better than Let's Encrypt.
Thanks for all the help. I see that I have some reading to do.
startSSL is a great option, and the certificates are reliable. Some free certificates end up unlisted after a few days and you end up with a certificate that doesn't work at all
You should try alphaSSL, however is your budget is low, wosign, comodo, and startSSL will do. LetsEncrypt only works with apache to my knowledge.
Really depends on how much money you wanna spend and do you need extended validation. Is it for ecommerce?
StartSSL is terrible, they did nothing when the Heartbleed vulnerability was out. They refused to reissue certificates without payment, which makes me judge their legibility.
Edit: @ChairHosting, fix your shi* website - who are you to talk about SSL when your own website has an expired certificate?
Or Let's Encrypt, of course.
WoSign if Free. I feel Let's Encrypt difficult !
I don't get what people find difficult about Lets encrypt.
Just follow instructions at http://letsencrypt.readthedocs.org/en/latest/using.html#webroot , certificates are issued almost instantly.
Oh, and it also works with any webserver which is actually serving files and not reverse proxying.
Any connection to HTTPZoom?
Your knowledge is terrible.
How about Geotrust and Comodo ssl certificates.
Well I havent really done research in Lets Encrypt :-) and I dont care much either.
If you've done now research, you've got no knowledge on the subject and shouldn't be posting false information..
Thats why I said to my knowledge
New project idea: A site which lists hosting providers with ret....(americanstyle censoring before these hosters feel offended and i get banned) people running the company, including quotes of them.
Would be a great quote collection
Cloudflare is fine. Just enable the Full SSL and redirect all non-HTTPS to HTTPS.
If you need Authenticated Origin Pulls from Cloudflare, get one free trial certificate for the connection.
You knowledge is as shit and as useless as your name now sit down
Free ssl are always a bit tricky, so you might want to consider a paid one. They aren't that expensive for what they give you. A comodo or rapidssl is pretty good for the price
You can use any ssl for it for example but if you also want ssl on .co.uk (which is being redirected from .com domain) then you will have to enable ssl for this (.co.uk) domain name too.
So do one thing, enable ssl on .co.uk domain name to take only single ssl.
Are your both domain name (except extension) same?
Letsencrypt running well in nginx, lighttpd and hiawatha beside apache (testing in Kloxo-MR 7.0).
For successful redirection, your both domains need to be secured with SSL Certificate. However, you have already installed an SSL on your single domain. Now you should get SSL worth $4.95 a year for your another domain, which is pretty cheap. And redirect to one domain to the desired destination.
Rapidssl from geotrust is the best ssl ever i've used
Get one from WoSign. Although it reads you can get 2 years cert for free, you can actually request 3 yrs one.
