InstantSSL - General Frequently Asked Questions
Why does an Instant SSL Certificate cost considerably less compared to other Certification Authorities?
Instant SSL has direct access to the IdAuthority,
the largest commercial directory on the web. Instant SSL can therefore
expediate the validation of an application. This efficient and highly
effective validation method ensures we can issue a Certificate at a greatly
reduced cost as reflected through our guaranteed lowest price in the industry
as well as maintain a level of validation far superior to the methods
employed by other SSL providers. In particular, the validation process
employed to issue an InstantSSL, Instant SSL Pro or PremiumSSL Certificate
is considerably more than just a domain name ownership check - we firmly
believe this method alone to be insufficient to maintain the level of
integrity in SSL that consumers have come to expect.
