launches new SSL certificate offering
issued in minutes, installed in seconds
Denver, CO February 2004. FreeSSL.com,
the SSL certificate security specialist, has today announced the launch
of StarterSSL − a new low cost, 128 bit SSL certificate ideal for lite
ecommerce. StarterSSL is issued in only minutes through the industry’s
fastest provisioning system, and being a single root certificate can be
installed in only seconds.
StarterSSL allow web site owners to
secure their customer transactions using SSL. Once installed,
StarterSSL allows web sites to display the “yellow padlock” in the
browser which signifies a “secure site” to customers.
At only $39 for a 1 year certificate,
StarterSSL is the industry’s lowest cost SSL certificate with
additional discounts being available for 2 and 3 year certificates.
StarterSSL is issued using FreeSSL.com’s fully automated online
validation system and therefore does not require any paperwork from the
applicant, making StarterSSL an extremely convenient SSL solution.
StarterSSL is a 128 bit SSL
certificate and is issued directly from a trusted root certificate
owned by FreeSSL.com. This means as well as being stable, StarterSSL is
already inherently trusted by the majority of popular browsers. Because
StarterSSL is a single root certificate it is extremely easy to install
and does not require the additional steps of installing “intermediate”
certificates that are necessary when using “chained root” SSL
certificates. By combining the industry’s lowest prices, fast issuance
and significant ease of installation, StarterSSL is ideal for entry
level web sites looking to secure lite levels of ecommerce.
StarterSSL joins FreeSSL.com’s other
● ChainedSSL Wildcard − a low cost
chained root wildcard certificate offering, allowing a single
certificate to be used to secure multiple sub domains.
● FreeSSL − a 30 day fully functional
trial certificate. FreeSSL is also a single root install and can be
installed in only seconds.
Since being founded, FreeSSL.com has
experienced great success as a low cost provider of fast and convenient
SSL certificates. FreeSSL.com also offers a Pay As You Go reseller
program ideal for web hosts who want to offer low cost SSL certificates
but do not want upfront costs, commitments or validation overheads.
As StarterSSL is a single root
install, web hosting companies can avoid any timely and expensive
customer support issues usually associated with the installation of
chained root certificates.
