High Assurance Certificates Comparison

Price Comparison for High Assurance SSL Certificates

High Assurance SSL Certificates are generally Organization Validation or Extended Validation SSL certificates that assert strong organizational identity and come backed by generous warranties and additional features. Some sites just want encryption, and that's fine. But if you've got to have an SSL certificate, why not leverage it for all it's worth?

On today's internet people expect to know who they're doing business with and SSL certificates are one of the few ways that a website can authoritatively assert its identity or the identity of the organization that runs it. By undergoing a comprehensive validation from a trusted entity like one of the Certificate Authorities listed below, you can provide your customers with the maximum level of assurance, which inevitably leads to better conversions and more profits.

Below you'll find a comparison of some of our most popular High Assurance SSL Certificates. Not just their prices, but their warranties and any add-ons they may come with. The benefit of selling certificates from multiple CAs is that we can be objective, which is why we've put together this comparison for you.

"Cheapsslsecurity is really flexible product for company starters including long term companies. Cheapsslsecurity offers affordable SSL Certificates. Which are really great product. Myself, I use Wildcard SSL by Comodo over a year with zero issues which is really surprise for so cheap Wildcard SSL. I would recommend this product to anyone."

"Very fast delivery. Installation was easy with no problems. If you are installing a wildcard SSL certificate on cPanel, you need to specify the actual domain name, don't try to install it on *.domain.com , you have to install it on each subdomain such as admin.domain.com, shop.domain.com,..etc. Use the same certificate for each subdomain you install. Good luck!"
