    I'm setting up an e-commerce site for my company using oscommerce (never done this before) and I need to purchase an SSL key. I need this to look professional, so it wont be good if my customer is getting a thousand security warnings. Where can I get a good one for between 100 to 200 dollars? I checked out verisign, but its like 400 a year :weak:

    I don't think it should matter. I was actually wrong, it's $29/year with godaddy. I think I might have paid less when i bought a little over a year ago.

    You can find out more info about their stuff here:
    https://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/ssl/ssl.asp?ci=8901

    I guess it all comes down to how much you want to pay. In reality, the godaddy certificate has exactly the same security as a super expensive verisign one (256 bit, etc).

    personally I would go with the godaddy deluxe...its a little more expensive($89), but there is a lot more security...+ it looks better. It doesn't scream amateur as the basic one does with godaddy plastered all over it

    It's not like you have to post the banner all over your site. I don't have any mention of the SSL on my site other than saying the site is secured :dunno:
