if a company's main income is not digital certificates then its not a pure CA.

This is very confusing. Dont get me wrong. Im just trying to understand the CAs world.
PURE CA is not based in the income or how or what way the the money is made.

CA is an entity that issues digital certificates. <---- PERIOD

Can it be said now, that Symantec is no longer a pure CA since the main income its protection software?


Note: GoDaddy is finally an official CA, correct? Maybe not PURE since it resells hosting and domain. But its listed as a CA at the CAB forum.

I don't understand what you are trying to achieve with this?

Comparison is made purely between success of CA brands....you can't compare a non CA brand with a CA brand.

I just want to understand why GoDaddy is considered a non CA brand, if the CAB Forum consider it is (because its a member). Plus, *seems* its not reselling StarFieldTech anymore (I have no way to base this).

In simple terms, why Symantec, GeoTrust, Comodo are considered CAs, and GoDaddy is not, if its issuing its own certificates? Im not trying to achieve something. Like I said, please dont get me wrong.

Perhaps this is something I need to answer myself with time and experience.

we are comparing brands here....

which brand made it on the CA market etc...

you can't compare brands that "made" it in other markets and then became a CA etc etc...

Melih didn't say GoDaddy wasn't a CA. He stated not a pure CA.

np at all.

If Pepsi or Nike was to become a CA now, that wouldn't mean that they are big as a CA because that brand is associated with non-CA activities.

 :o ??? LOL LOL LOL  :D
I dont know if your "sarcastic" post (in case it was sarcastic) was supposed to make me laugh or to make your previous statement crystal clear.

Either way, it happened both.
Made me laugh. hahaha

Most important of all, it hit me on the head and I finally understand what you mean.  8)
