Exclamation vBulletin or Web Programmer experts & SSL certificate info

As some of you have seen, the web browsers are going the direction of all sites being secure (https vs http) and we need to update our forum to support this change.

So I wanted to see if we have any vBulletin or web programmer experts out there that could provide some assistance in helping with this task for The Paceline.

Additionally, we will need to purchase a SSL certificate and I wanted to find out if there is a recommended site/company to use.

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know what level certificate we would need? Looks like there are several options...

I spent some time becoming familiar with what we need to do to resolve this issue, but I'd still love to get input on the various SSL certificate providers. I'm considering GoDaddy since they are among the least expensive, but they don't get the best reviews on this site...

Does anyone have some experience with SSL certificate providers?

Keith--I can help with this. My company does web certs and CDN (content Delivery Network) with Akamai; we're actually doing a push to work with vBulletin sites. I can set up a call with my tech guy to give you the options/steps. Zero obligation or anything, 'natch.

You do have several options for Certs; Wilcard, SAN Cert, Dedicated. No reason not to use a shared cert I don't believe. PM me if you want to set up a time to chat this week.

I used Namecheap

I'm the webmaster for our cycling club here in Tucson. SSL's come in many forms. For us, since the only thing we sell is memberships and kits, we don't need a lot of high priced insurance that many sellers offer, and we don't have the money to buy a high priced SSL either.

Namecheap has a SSL certificate for $9 a year or three years for $26.85. We worked with the vendor for our site, bought a 3 year cert, sent it to them, and it worked as advertised.

Not completely. I did receive an offer to provide assistance, but this hasn't come to fruition yet. Thanks for asking.

Letsencrypt.org is free and open source. Seems to be a popular choice.

I don't have‚Äč any first hand experience though.
