    Verisign are very expensive IMO, and you don't gain security only recognition and potentially their validation measures.

    I'm using a cert from certificatesforexchange.com and I couldn't be happier at how much it cost and how well it works.  If I didn't use them I'd look at Digicert, but for us the benefits didn't warrant the price jump.

  • This can vary between different certificate authorities because some do and do not allow you to use the cert on more than one server. Check with the CA you go with to make sure you understand their requirements and pricing.

    In most cases you create the CSR on one CAS server, send the request, get the response back, import the response, then export the certificate with the private key so it can be installed on other CAS servers.
