The SSL Store has cut prices on two of its most popular certificates, GeoTrust QuickSSL and RapidSSL Wildcard, for anyone seeking to secure a Facebook application in advance of the October 1 deadline set by the social media giant.
“This allows us to essentially give the first two months of SSL security for free to any Facebook app developer, so people can go ahead and secure their apps now, well in advance of the deadline,” explains The SSL Store Spokesperson Kent Roberts. “It’s also worth consideration that if anyone specifies https Facebook, which would typically be a more security-savvy person, they are currently booted from that when they hit an unsecured Facebook app’s page. It’s inexpensive and easy to keep those visitors and everyone else who visits your page secure, and we have 24/7 live chat support to help Facebook app developers through the process.”
The SSL Store decided to focus on helping Facebook app developers secure their sites with SSL when they realized that though some Facebook app developers might be SSL experts and appreciate lower prices, others who have created Facebook apps may not be all that familiar with choosing an SSL or installing it. The company has made a name for itself by keeping its prices the guaranteed lowest in the industry while not sacrificing its quality of customer service, providing sales and technical support 24/7 by live chat and email, including 24/7 direct access to the certificate’s issuing company.
Roberts summarizes The SSL Store’s mission: “We try to stand out as an option for SSL, and we think Facebook App Developers will see us as a good option for SSL partnership for their existing Facebook apps and any new Facebook applications.”
