Verisign certificates are better because they cost so much more, right? Not necessarily. You can get a certificate for €100 that does that exact same thing as a certificate sold for €800 from another certificate authority. It is the exact same SSL encryption.

Why the difference? Trust is the biggest difference. Since VeriSign has been around for longer than other certificate authorities, more people trust them so they can charge more. You are essentially paying for the brand.
