Cheap SSL Certificates

I often see discussions about where to get reasonably priced SSL certificates, and so I’d like to share my source.

For some time I’ve been using a RapidSSL reseller called “RapidSSL Online

Unlike much of the competition, their prices start at $14.95USD/year, offering 128 / 256 bit single root SSL certificate.

I have no affiliation with them beyond being a satisfied customer, and I receive no compensation for this referral, I simply detest some of the larger players charging substantially more for what is ultimate the same thing.

  1. hi,
    How to install the RapidSSL wildcard certificate?
    Because Mdaemon does not see this certificate in the system. MDaemon requires a certificate with the private key or the RapidSSL certificate they gave me does not have a private key inside.

  2. Hey Fred,

    By definition, you must have the private key to host a service using that certificate. Most likely you’re either missing the private key, or installed the certificate into the wrong certificate store. Note that Windows will not install certificates into the correct store for server software to use, make sure that when you import the certificate you choose Computer account, and then Local computer.
