Certificate Offerings & Pricing Information

  • Comodo SSL certificate - Our basic offering enables the use of an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificate, which provides assurance to your users that session information from your site cannot be tampered with, protecting data with up to 256 bit encryption. A 2048 bit digital signature verifies that traffic is only coming from and going to your website or service.

    Description 1 Year Rate 2 Year Rate 3 Year Rate 4 Year Rate 5 Year Rate
    Standard SSL Certificate $95 $172 $220 $260 $305
    Price Per Year   $86 $73 $65 $61


  • Comodo Wildcard Certificate - A Wildcard SSL Certificate allows you to use the same SSL certificate for multiple subdomains, providing cost savings and simplification of deployment and support. For example, you could have yourorganization.org, registration.yourorganization.org, and mail.yourorganization.org all covered under the same Wildcard SSL certificate.

    Description 1 Year Rate 2 Year Rate 3 Year Rate 4 Year Rate 5 Year Rate
    Wildcard SSL Certificate $435 $830 $1,180 $1,430 $1,600
    Price Per Year   $415 $393 $359 $320


  • Comodo EV SSL Certificate - An Extended Validation SSL Certificate provides enhanced security by requiring additional identify verification of the website owner before the certificate is activated. In leading web browsers an EV certificate will highlight the address bar in green, thus providing greater peace of mind for your site visitors.

    Description 1 Year Rate 2 Year Rate
    Extended Validation (EV) Standard SSL Certificate $415 $660
    Price Per Year   $330


  • Comodo EV MDC Certificate - Like Wildcard certificates, a Multi-Domain Certificate (MDC) allows you to serve multiple domains from one certificate. With an MDC certificate you can cover a number of domains. For example you could have yourorganization.org, thissite.net, thatsite.com, and anothersite.edu. MDC certificates are ideal for organizations who host applications for multiple clients with each client using their own domain name. The EV MDC Certificate features the same enhanced verification and browser functions as the EV SSL Certificate.

    Description 1 Year Rate 2 Year Rate
    3 Domains (price is per Domain) $280 $495
    Price Per Year   $248
    4 - 2,005 Domains (price is per Domain) $95 $190
    Price Per Year   $95
