We’ve reduced the pricing on the following Thawte SSL certificates today, permanently. If you already have a Thawte cert with us, this is the price you’ll pay from this point forward.
Thawte certs are backed by Symantec, and generally come second in perception surveys, so they’re a very good fit for SMEs. We also supply premium Symantec certs for applications where perception and security is critical, and for the more budget-concious we can supply GeoTrust, Trustwave and Comodo certs.
