FreeSSL.com,(TM) the SSL certificate security specialist, today
announced it will be the first SSL provider to issue free 128-bit,
one-year, single-root SSL certificates to newly issued .Pro domain name
owners. With the availability of a free SSL certificate from
FreeSSL.com, professional domain owners can secure their .Pro web sites

is able to conduct secure online transactions and e-commerce.
A free StarterSSL(TM) certificate will
be available to all .Pro domain name owners with proof of ownership of
their .Pro domains. StarterSSL is the most advanced 128-bit SSL
certificate offered by FreeSSL.com. It is a highly-trusted, single-root
install SSL certificate, and avoids the sometimes difficult and
extensive installation issues that can be associated with “chained
root” certificates. StarterSSL is issued through FreeSSL.com’s patented
automated issuance process, which ensures StarterSSL certificates are
“issued in minutes and installed in seconds”.
