Comodo is selling 5-year SSL certs. But I thought the limit had been capped at 2 years. What gives?

Yep, this is the right answer. I had to follow the asterisks and read the fine print, they will hit you up to renew the cert every 2 years. However, the wording on their marketing copy is very deceptive, they specifically use the term "5-year certificate"

Seems like a way to keep unaware folks on the hook for as many years as possible. Especially lame considering the second time you renew the cert you only get a single year, and will therefore be more likely to re-up the subscription to get the convenience of a 2-year cert. It's a hotdog / hotdog bun scam.
