How Can I Get That Huge Security Icon On My Secure Site?

- 1 answer

If I go to www.paypal.com, Firefox displays a huge icon in the location bar. Is it possible to get my web site to do this without paying $2700 to Verisign? Where is the best place to buy SSL certificates and not break the bank?

Answer

You're talking about EV (extended validation) SSL. Digicert are very competitive for this ($488 per year) and also standard SSL certificates. Whoever you go for though, make sure you check what browser compatibility they have as some of the cheaper ones do not have as wide support as the more expensive ones meaning you're kinda getting what you pay for.

Edit: also, EV is only supported on the more recent browsers (not IE6 for example).
