Can I change the domain in my SSL Certificate?

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

Yes, you can change the domain name that your SSL Certificate is issued to. The procedure involves the reconfiguration and reissue of your SSL Certificate, and there are some additional steps if you have a Business Validation or Extended Validation Certificate.

Domain Validation SSL Certificates

You can reissue your SSL Certificate from your SSL Dragon account by following the next steps:
1) Log into your SSL Dragon account;
2) Go to Services -> My Services;
4) You will see the list of products which you bought from SSL Dragon. Click on the SSL Certificate which you would like to reissue;
5) Click on the “Reissue certificate” button on the left side (see the screenshot on the right);
6) Reconfigure your SSL Certificate. As a part of the reconfiguration, please create a new CSR code and enter the new domain name in it.
7) After reconfiguring your SSL Certificate, you will have to pass the Domain Validation again.

For Domain Validation SSL Certificates, your SSL Certificate will be reissued for the new domain name after you pass the domain validation successfully.

Business Validation SSL Certificates

To change the domain name in your Business Validation SSL Certificate, you have to go through the same reconfiguration and domain validation process as described under the “Domain Validation” section above. After that, you have to contact the Certificate Authority, to provide them your “Partner Order ID”, and tell them that you reissued your SSL Certificate for a new domain name. They might schedule a callback verification with you, and your SSL Certificate will be reissued within 1 business day after that.
