  • I’ve heard that theSSLstore.com is running a special on VeriSign Secure Site Pro with EV for only $899. I’ve just received an email from them.
    They are not publishing this offer on their site, so, use promo code VSSPEV02 to redeem. that’s why I wanted to share it with you…!!!
    The link to redeem is http://www.thesslstore.com/VSSPEV/
