We found that the Geo trust company is no longer in the market. But later it has been verified once I have gone through their official website. Certain sort of confusions regarding the actually owner of Geotrust is the reason behind such sayings.

Currently it has been owned by Symantec along with VeriSign around the year of 2010 at the dollar deal of 1.28 billion.

Little bit more affordable compared to their other competitors, sometimes we may have some doubts regarding shortfall in the security. $1.5 billion is the highest liability certificate offered by GEoTrust.

The bad:

Some special concerns with geotrust. As there is no BBB profile we would like to know about, ranking among customers, certificate validation process, issuance time,

Different validation times for different products:

Quick SSL certificates can be issued validated and verified within few minutes. True businessID has enhanced validation had 1-10 business days of issuance. Other than that issuance time was consistent for all the other products.

High Price for Wildcard certificate:

We has some issues with its pricing. By making use of this certificate you can secure unlimited number of domains as well as subdomains. Other than that price for 3 years wildcard SSL certificate was very high. For three years it costs $1248 where as its competitor is offering three year wildcard certificate for $404.95.

The bottom line:

We found that Geotrust is on the little expensive side compared to some of its competitors. They have high level of legitimacy and high level of warranty coverage for the websites upto$1.5 million. Providing extra a little bit support to the resource page can be made effective. Other than that all the prices and features are looking good.
