Re: Why?

That's what extended validation certificates are for. You will simply not be able to get an EVC for payzpal.com

Free domain-only certificates are part of the carrot-and-stick approach to depreciating non-secure HTTP entirely.

Now go on, argue with a straight face how unencrypted AND unauthenticated is more secure than domain-only authentication + encrypted. The only people upset about this are the certificate sellers who's money-for-nothing gravy trains are about to be derailed.
