can I ask a stupid question here?

What value does purchasing a SSL cert give you?

Why do I need to buy one, when I can make one myself? My site has it's own
that I rolled myself.

No one has ever asked me about my cert, ever questioned it.

I'm just wondering.

Maybe I should go into the cert business!  ;)

Seriously, does buying a cert really give you anything?

Thanks for your comments.
