Cheap or even free SSL certificate

SSL certificate is essential if you want more security for your website, but unfortunately the price of a valid and cheap SSL certificate is rarely to be found. The average price of SSL certificate ranges from $100 - $200, a price that usually can only get the lower-class certificate.

A few days ago, I made an observations to some of SSL Certificate providers out there, where I want the SSL certificate to meet my needs as follows:

  • Multiple Domains (UCC)
  • Wild Card Capability
  • S/MIME Client + Auth / SMTP

And after several days of searching, I finally found a SSL certificate provider that provides features like I was looking for with a very cheap price at only $59.90 for two years. Not only that, they also provide a free SSL certificate, valid for 1 year and can be renewed again.

Company that provide this SSL certificate is StartCom Ltd, which is an Israel-based company and founded by Eddy Nigg. Get your cheap or free SSL certificate here.

P5RD1-VM and Windows 7

I have a very old computer, built in 2006 by using Asus P5RD1-VM motherboard and an Intel 2.8GHz processor. This system was built when Windows 7 has not been released so that the default driver of the P5RD1-VM motherboard is no longer compatible.

After looking on the internet and visiting a few forums, I finally found the drivers needed so that I could install Windows 7 on my old computer, here are the new driver for P5RD1-VM:

  • P5RD1-VM has an integrated graphic card based on ATI Radeon X300. You can download the driver here.
  • P5RD1-VM has an integrated sound card, the SoundMAX from Analog Devices. Download the sound card driver here.
  • P5RD1-VM use the ULi SATA M5287. Download the SATA driver here.
  • P5RD1-VM use the ULi M526X Ethernet Controller. Download the ULi Lan driver here.

Indeed, the graphic driver used is using the driver for Windows Vista but it works well with Windows 7, even I can got the Windows Aero to work as well.
