What is a reseller certificate
Major Certificate Authorities ('OEM' SSL Providers) will operate partner programs directly. Disclosure, I'm with one of them - GlobalSign.
GlobaSign has thousands of worldwide partners and we've found the following factors are typically considered when resellers are evaluating potential CA partner:
- Margins. you want to resell to make money, so you need to ensure you can buy Certificates at a rate that gives you good margins. The lower the SRP from the CA directly, the harder it is to make margin.
- Reputation. SSL is security, and security requires credibility, and you want to ensure you partner with a CA that has been around for a while and has a credible name in the industry.
- Integration & APIs. it's likely that you will benefit from some kind of integration to automate your reselling workflow depending on how you run your business, such as a developer API or direct integration into cPanel, Plesk, WHMCS, NGINX, DirectAdmin etc.
Good luck with your evaluation.
