How to reissue an SSL Certificate?

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

We allow you to reissue your SSL Certificate for various reasons. You may want to change your domain name, your company name, or maybe you changed servers and you were given another CSR which was generated on your new server, or you lost your Private Key and you need to get a new Private Key based on a new CSR that you generated.

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, you will have to enter a new CSR code.

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

Business Validation SSL Certificates

To reissue a 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. They might (or might not) schedule a callback verification with you, and your SSL Certificate will be reissued within 1 business day after that.
