Thawte is selling 1 year certs at 199 $ each. If you have a Load
Balancer System, they ask you to buy additional "Licences" for the
second, third, etc ... Real server.
In fact, if you just copy & paste the original cert, all is working fine
(ie, without additional "licences"), ... But you do not have the right
for it. This is a new pricing scheme of Thawte, that still seems cheaper
than offers you had!
However, you still need one cert for each domain.
There Web Site is all new, quite long to read everything, but procedures
are well explained.

Finally received the quote from Verisign for 128-bit SSL certs
for our website, and I was blown away, $1595/yr! These guys must be
making money hand over foot at these prices. They want $895 for one cert
and license for one server and another $700 for each additional server
in the cluster. This is only for one FQDN, by the end of next year, I'll
need to secure three more domains hosted by these servers... Perhaps I
heard wrong, but I had thought that I could simply get one cert for a
domain (in this case www.smartbrief.com) and use it on all the servers
hosting it in my LVS system, but the Verisign people said I needed to
buy licenses for each server in the system!
So I am wondering if Verisign is yanking my chain and if anyone
has any recommedations for other Root CA's that have more reasonable
