    Free SSL certs - where?

    Hi,

    I have an SBS2008 server at home, and Id like to have a valid cert for
    it, for OWA and RWW.

    Is there anyone that does them for free?

    If it was a business site, obviously Id simply buy one, but for myself,
    Id like a free one?

    The CAs usually tell you why a denial decision was made. The CAs will query
    a whois on the domain name, and the applicant name and address must match
    the whois on record, as well as having a postmaster@ account under the
    domain to respond to approve the request. If hidden (such as privatized),
    you must un-hide it for the application to go through. So it could have been
    something like that, which caused them to deny it. I would call them up and
    ask them why.

    Hmm, I was curious why, especially that GoDaddy issued one without problems.
    Oh well. At least you got one now. :-)

    That redirect is dead now. Can you just post the real link?

    I jsut clicked on it, and the TinyURL redirect worked for me. Possibly just
    happened to be an issue with their service when you clicked on it.
