I must admit, reading that post made me feel exactly like how I felt when going through validation myself a few months ago.

I gave them every single information they wanted, even offered them to call the phone for me to pick it up - they flat out refused and asked for more information. They preferred sending mail to an address that I allegedly owned over calling the number associated with my phone bill. They get away with this because they and their customers can justify it by saying they're a CA but the reality is the whole system is very inconsistent and doesn't really make me want to put my trust into the organization.

The whole thing looks like it's run off somebody's mother's basement. They're really cheap for what they offer, and the cost is appropriate for the level of service as well ( very bad ).

StartSSL technically enables me to create an unlimited amount of
certificates for websites we own. I don't think, in the circumstances,
what they ask for is overboard.

Their customer service is also excellent.

FYI, i've been using them for about 4 years now.

StartSSL are great for the free certificates, as they are valid for
longer than any other free providers (excluding cacert). I wouldn't
want to give any money/documents to them though.
