You sure about that? Verisign is the company who break DNS (yes, the world 
wide DNS. Not just their servers. Well, it *was* their servers, but that's 
exactly the problem) in some respect to increase their profit (search some 
tech news site for wildcard dns record), were forced to undo that, and 
announced they would do it again in the near future. Verisign is the company 
who sold a certificate for microsoft.com to some joe random - so I guess 
somebody might do the same for your site.. Verisign is the company who 
routinely spams people who try to change their domain name registration to a 
different provider, or who have done so in the past.

[I think their 'separating out' the registry business and all this is a 
technicality. It's still the same].

No, I won't name any other company here, and I'm not afiliated to any company 
selling certificates.

cheers
