How to reissue an SSL Certificate? (Except CPAC and Code Signing)

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.

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;
  3. You will see the list of products which you bought from SSL Dragon. Click on the SSL Certificate which you would like to reissue;
  4. Click on the “Reissue Certificate” button in the Actions section;
  5. Reconfigure your SSL Certificate. As a part of the reconfiguration, you will have to enter a new CSR code;
  6. For Multi-Domain SSL – Don’t forget to include the SAN list in the SANs field;

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