    SSL Certificate Comparison.

    Should I purchase the "Comodo Instant SSL" or "Trustwave Premium SSL" for my online e-commerce retail site?

    Please don't recommend other SSL's. I am only choosing one of these two since I receive a discount.

    Thank you

    SSL Certificate is almost similar, only the providers are different. If I am not mistaken, Comodo offers cheaper SSL Certificate. However, in terms of the popularity, Trustwave is more popular. If I were you, I'll choose Trustwave due to the brand popularity

    The question between certificates is how they benefit the user... so what you should be looking at is their browser acceptance rate, security seal [and public recognition of said name] and any special offers.

    If you determine the programs are the same in acceptance and features and the price is different, then price wins, but usually there are other parts of the program you benefit from... even if it's just a more known seal for consumers.

    Looks like I was on to something as a new, albeit non-scientific, study shows the vast differences in recognition between leading marks.

    Godaddy EV SSL. EV actually does have an affect on conversions. Godaddy's is the cheapest I have found. If you are actually looking for a trust mark to go with it, then Verisign is the only one that really matters. Their EV is ridiculously expensive though.
