    look up the price for a single domain ssl cert
    multiply by the number of domains you have
    if the price is more than that, then yes

    are you brain damaged op?

      He didn't ask if a wildcard ssl was a good investment. He asked whether $600 was a good price for one.

        And from a buyers point of view the question is identical.

      How is it even possible that any of you are paying for an SSL certificate when LetsEncrypt is free and supported by everything under the sun. Even if you are using a shared hosting provider they should have it.

      LetsEncrypt and AWS Certificate Manager are completely free. What fricking timeline are you homosexuals in where people are paying for SSL certificates?

        i can't speak for who is purchasing, but if you are hosting a server on someone else's domain name, you probably have to get that someone else to pay, and then have them send you the certificate.

          If you're hosting a server on someone else's domain name, you can safely and legitimately issue yourself a free cert with ACME and Let's Encrypt, it just can't be a wildcard cert (but it can be a multi-domain cert for each name you have a server on, even if you don't own the names.)

      That's fine for hobby sites, but if you don't want to get blacklisted or labeled as a potential cyber security threat, you gotta pay up.

        does anyone actually blacklist lets encrypt certs? Easily 40-50% of the sites I visit on a daily basis use it, basically everything that's not run by a large corporation (that typically use digicert).

    anyone who interacts with chain of trust model where nobody knows anything about the root authority and therefore cannot possibly have any reason to trust them is not only a fool but actively perpetuating harm to the ecosysstem of the internet.
    nobody who relies on ssl certificates understands what its purpose is or would have the first clue how to audit one.
    its actively harmful
