If you have a tool that generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR), you send it to getacert.com and get it signed by getacert.com as the issuer. And it is free.

1. Make sure you have your Certificate Signing Request (CSR) file ready. You can use the .csr file downloaded from getacert.com when you generated your self-signed certificate.

2. Go to getacert.com

3. Click the "Submit certificate signing request (CSR)" link in the menu

4. Open your .csr file in a text editor

5. Copy and paste the CSR content into getacert.com form

6. Click "SubmitCSR" button

7. Download the following items:

Your signed public certificate/key (.cer)
   This is your public key signed by getacert.com.

In PEM format (.pem)
   Same as above, but in PEM format containing addtional details 
   in clear text.
   
getacert.com public certificate (.cer)
   This is the public key certificate of getacert.com, which is 
   self-signed by getacert.com.

The certificate signed by getacert.com is a valid public key certificate. You can use it for testing purpose as long as you keep it together with getacert.com certificate, because getacert.com is not a trusted root CA.
