SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Domain registrar Go Daddy announced today that it will issue its Turbo SSL Certificate free of charge to the open source community.

SSL Certificates verify that a website has been validated by an independent authority, that customer information is protected and that transactions are encrypted and secure.

“We are a big supporter of the open source community,” said Bob Parsons, president and co-founder of the Go Daddy Group Inc. “Go Daddy offers numerous open source software applications in conjunction with our hosting plans, specifically blogging, image galleries, content management and more. We will augment these offerings in the coming months.”

Go Daddy certificates, normally priced at $29.95 for a one-year subscription, provide 99 percent browser recognition and 128-bit encryption.

The company already has issued a free SSL certificate to binarycloud, an open source project focused on application framework and development environments for creating large-scale PHP applications.

“Part of what binarycloud offers is highly secure authentication, which means everything we do must be extremely secure, especially code checkins,” said Alex Black, project leader for binarycloud. “[Go Daddy] kindly donated an enterprise-grade SSL certificate to the project, and we’ve used it with no problems for a variety of services.”

Go Daddy certificates have received the WebTrust Seal of Assurance, awarded by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants.
