You can buy your own cert server. (RSA Keon for example)
At that point, you can create your own certs. (expire them when you want..ect)
You then have two options.
1) Pay a fee and have your cert server 'trusted' via Verisign or other CA's
2) Leave it 'private' and just provide your CA cert to the users so they will
trust you. (if you don't it will still work. They will just see a message about
trusting your site)

sign, etc. it seems there is a monopoly an i want to be out of it. does anyone know a better
way to secure the web site or do i have to pay money, (even) for security ?
