Free vs Paid SSL Certificates

Paid SSL certificates have higher levels of validation, along with the support that is available should you need anything. SSL/TLS has a lot of moving parts, which means there are a lot of chances for something to happen where you may be out of your depth. Paid SSL Certificates come with full 24/7 support, giving you peace of mind that we have you covered no matter what happens.
