A free SSL Certificate may look good and cost-free solution but it comes with certain boundaries. On the other side, paid SSL certificate is an excellent choice for any kind of business which has more advantages compared to free SSL Certificate.

Let us find out the difference between Free SSL vs Paid SSL Certificate

Free SSL
  • Domain Validated Only
  • Unsuitable for Ecommerce and Government Websites
  • May hurt your customer trust and confidence
  • Limited Lifetime (30-90 days)

Paid SSL Certificate
  • Different options like OV SSL, EV SSL, SANs, Wildcard etc
  • Suitable for every business platform
  • Extended Lifetime access (1-2 year)
  • Higher warranty amounts

I originally thought you were asking this as a question but this seemed to be more like an answer.

Anyways, for personal sites, blogs, freelancers, etc. free SSL is good.

If you're an enterprise which is registered legally then you should invest in EV SSLs which costs just around $500-$1000 per year (there are more costly ones though)

Again, both the SSLs do the basic stuff, SECURITY (encryption) during transmission of sensitive data from browser to the web server.

Agreed but EV certs are MUCH cheaper than that.

Try Half that cost

Wholesale the cheapest i can get is $129 for a Thawte SSL Web Server with EV, but then you have to place your profit onto of that, so retail will be $200 to $250, but direct from Thawte it is $299 for 1 year
