    Hi,

    Might be a dumb question but I have this question in my head for days now.
    I'm going to buy several SSL certificates for my domain names. Now, my webhosting sells a lot of different SSL certificates.

    But what's the difference between Comodo PositiveSSL and Comodo EssentialSSL? Can't find any info at my hosting.

    Comodo PositiveSSL costs € 4,99 while Comodo EssentialSSL costs € 7,49 /year.
    Can't find any difference besides the price tag tho.

    So, could anyone tell me the difference?

    Because I don't want to use a free SSL for my business websites. It's not a simple niche site lol.
    If I wanted a free SSL certificate I would've already got a Let's Encrypt SSL.
