Eccentric infosec man John McAfee is now the proprietor of a Certificate Authority named BlackCert. Fresh from a shootout friendly discussion with police over drug and firearm possession, the one-time anti-virus boss has made what is badged as a disruptive play into SSL. BlackCert will offer unlimited use of SSL certificates …
"BlackCert will offer unlimited use of SSL certificates for basement prices"
Base certificate $60 compared to Namecheap's $9 basic cert
Multi-domain $140 compared to Namecheap's "$29.88
Clearly a new definition of basement prices that I was previously unaware of. Don't know how much the free poodle is worth.
NOTE: I'm not shilling for Namecheap and am not making a penny for saying nice things about them. I (and clients) have been happy customer/s for over a decade now with pretty well no problems. It's (so far) safe to type in domains you're thinking about without them being snatched; they don't bury the stuff you need behind crap trying to sell you things you don't need; and their support is very good. How things should be, but so infrequently are.
The only glitch for me of late is incomplete support for .com.au domains - you can buy them and run them; but can't transfer .com.au domains in.
Seems their website has other problems too. :( The bottom of the front page of their website has the "Contact Us" details like this:
Clicking that gives:
␣ PAGE NOT FOUND
␣ The requested page could not be found.
The "Support" link in the top right corner goes to the same (non-functional) URL too. Wonder if that means there's no support...?
