    Hi

    On a forum i am thinking to use ssl but i don't know which one to get and from which company....
    There is no sub domains and i want the users to not have any problems with it as i was read many users if the certificate is not A+ good one they will not be able to open or use the forum....

    So is it possible for a cheap and good working solution?

    Thanks

    Comodo PositiveSSL would work fine for non-wildcard SSL certificate :)

    Thanks :)

    What's the plus and minus for using ssl in your opinion?

    Security? Performance? Any other issues compared to normal http?

    besides for e-commerce, SSL would be for security and performace (SPDY) and Google ranking see SSL - HTTPS as a Google ranking signal | Centmin Mod Community
