Is Signs It Is Time To Switch SSL Certificate Providers

As an IT professional, you probably have service companies and providers you have been working with for years. You use the same companies on all the websites you develop and manage, usually without giving the reasons why much thought or consideration.

It is easy to get into a rut and just keep everything the same. It takes time and energy to research new types of providers, but it really can make a very significant impact on several factors. If you are developing or managing eCommerce sites, then choosing the best SSL certificate providers is going to make your life a lot easier.

For those website managers with existing SSL certificate providers, taking a bit of time to compare your current Certificate Authority (CA) with the competition offers you choices, options and possibly a better price.

At Comodo, we are extremely competitively priced when compared to the competition. We also offer more features and benefits with our Secure Socket Layer certificates compared to LabTech, Ninja MSP or Continuum.

Regardless of what CA you are using, taking the time to look at prices, options and security solutions makes a lot of sense. If you haven't compared your CA with Comodo, here are a few reasons why you need to leave your old SSL certificate providers and try our service.

Customer Service

Some SSL certificate providers see this as a do-it-yourself project. They anticipate that all IT providers or individuals working on a website will be able to generate a CSR, obtain the SSL certificate and then complete the installation without a hiccup.

At Comodo, we realize that many of our clients may experience some types of challenges during the process. To help, we have prepared an extensive knowledge base and we also provide technical support through email, phone and live chat.

Most of the tickets generated will be answered within an hour and we always strive to provide the level of support and services our customers need in a timely, prompt and professional way.

Value and Price

When it comes to SSL certificate providers, there is the cost or the price of the SSL certificate and then also the value to consider. The value is not a monetary amount, but rather the services, features and additional benefits that come along with the price.

Often people are attracted to a very low price for an SSL certificate. These lower prices typically mean no additional features, limited ability to work with customer support and little in the way of value-added services.

Different types of SSL certificates include 30 days refund policies, 2048-bit signatures as recommended by NIST, a Comodo TrustLogo site seal, free S3 SSL certificate management tool, and 90 days free trials of Comodo cWatch website security platform, HackerGuardian Enterprise PCI scanning and HackerProof website vulnerability scanning. Additionally, Wildcard SSL secures unlimited subdomains and a main domain.

Keep in mind these tools are provided at the cost we have quoted. We don't add on to the price if you use the tools; they are there for your use as long as you have a valid SSL certificate.

We also don't have any hidden fees or costs that will show up over time. The price you are quoted is the price you will pay. We offer lower yearly rates based on the length of time you request the SSL certificate. We provide up to three years on our paid SSL certificate, which is the best option if you are shopping for price and value combined.

Compatibility with Browsers

While most CAs will offer certificates that are recognized by the major browsers of Chrome, Mozilla and IE, not all of the browsers accept certificates from all CAs.

At Comodo, we have worked hard to develop a top reputation as a CA. One of the benefits of this effort is that our SSL certificates are recognized by 99.9% of browsers in use. This means customers on virtually all browsers will be able to quickly identify your website as secure, leading to increased trust and higher conversion rates.

There is a lot of difference in the various SSL certificate providers out there. Taking your time to investigate and compare what different CAs are offering can be eye-opening, particularly if you have been using a CA for a long time and haven't looked into the competition.
