SSL pop up box


Hi all

I have worked out to get the SSL going on my server, I have 2 green ticks out of three. I understand that for the third tick, I need to pay for a verisign key.

Question this may sound silly, but i'm asking if it can be done.

Can one hide the pop up box that pop's up once you access a https site ?


TT

You can have the pop-up box not show up at all but the problem is that your ssl certifacte must be signed by a trusted CA(Certificate Authority i.e. verisign) This costs lots of money and is not really worth it unless your running an e-commerce site.

Their was an article on slashdot a few days ago about a company who offers free certificate signings. I didn't check out all the details but you can check it out yourself:
