    Issue Custom Branded Certificates With SSL.com’s PKI

    With a custom-branded issuing certificate authority (CA) (also known as a subordinate CA), signed and hosted by SSL.com, your company or organization can leverage our technology and expertise to issue publicly trusted X.509 end entity certificates with your company’s name as the issuer without having to invest in PKI infrastructure and staff. This includes a position in SSL.com’s PKI hierarchy chained to SSL.com’s trusted root.

    We can also provide assistance with CA-related services, such as:

  • Authoring your own Certificate Policy and Certification Practices Statement (CP/CPS)
  • Designing and conducting an official issuing key generation ceremony
  • Architecting custom PKI solutions for specific use cases
  • SSL.com’s facilities and processes undergo regular reviews, testing, and rigorous annual external audits to maintain our WebTrust certifications and ensure your peace of mind.

    How the Program Works

    Existing SSL.com customers can upgrade their accounts to enroll in the Reseller and Volume Purchasing Program, or new accounts can be created specifically for this purpose. Customers are assigned to pricing tiers based on the needs of organizations of different sizes, with each tier requiring an initial deposit that can be applied toward purchasing certificates at a discount.

    Pricing Tiers:

    Tier Recommended For Deposit Amount Discount
    1 Individuals, “pay as you go” $0.00 None
    2 Professionals, DBAs, contractors $200.00 ~20% off
    3 Small to medium-sized businesses $1,000.00 ~25% off
    4 Large businesses $5,000.00 ~30% off
    5 Enterprise organizations $20,000.00 ~40% off
    6 Enterprise organizations $35,000.00 ~50% off
    7 Enterprise organizations $50,000.00 ~65% off

    It’s important to note that the initial deposit does not need to be maintained; customers will continue receiving the discount associated with their tier even after the deposit has been spent. As purchasing volume increases, customers may move into higher tiers at any time, resulting in lower costs for volume purchasers and increased profitability for resellers.

    API Access

    Participants in the Reseller and Volume Purchasing Program can also take advantage of SSL.com’s SSL Web Services (SWS) API. This allows for the creation of custom scripts to automate processes such as ordering, validation, and rekeying, as well as extracting information for account management purposes. The SWS API also supports ACME automation for seamless certificate issuance and management. Use of the SWS API is complimentary for Reseller and Volume Purchasing partners.

    Sandbox Environment

    To facilitate integration testing and development, SSL.com provides a sandbox environment that mirrors the functionality of the production SWS API. This allows partners to safely test their scripts and integrations without impacting live data or consuming actual resources. The sandbox environment is available to all Reseller and Volume Purchasing Program participants at no additional cost.
