[thelist] How to pick a Security Certificate

Today there are a myriad of companies offering a myriad of SSL Certs 
with a slew of various options and prices. I remember once upon a time 
that buying an SSL was pretty simple--you just buy it.  :)

I don't know what all these options are, but my guess is that the 
cheapest ones must somehow not be worth anything, yet that the big 
companies may not be necessary either. GoDaddy seems also to sell, along 
with the big companies like verisign and thawte.

I just want a 'normal' simple cert for a modest site so we can take CC 
numbers on our store. That's all.

Any advice?
