    Recently, i upgraded a bunch of my server certificates using Godaddy certificates. Yes, i actually own and maintain my own boxes located in different parts of the country.

    After installing these certificates, i found these Godaddy certificates not PCI COMPLIANT as they claim to be and happen to come across Geotrust offering FREE replacement certificates for anyone who owns a Godaddy certificate. Knowing Geotrust themselves i was sure that i would be getting a much better certificate, and maybe PCI Compliant since the cost of the QuickSSL Permium is like $149 p/y investment.

    So here is the page i landed on;

    WHOS YOUR DADDY NOW?

    http://www.geotrust.com/whos-your-daddy-now.html

    I clicked on the link to signup for a FREE SSL REPLACEMENT Certificate just like it says quite clearly on that page;

    ... and once i spend what seems like an eternity signing up and validating my Godaddy Cert for replacement im taken to a screen thats asks me to pay using a credit card;

    The fee is; $15

    Kidding. While this is bloody cheap for a QuickSSL Premium cert which usually costs $149 p/y i thought it was out of their league to ask for money when they clearly state its FREE.

    Whos kidding who here?

    I'm sure there will be someone from Geotrust defending their stance on this here once it hits the serps but i found this to be false advertising at its best.
