What is an SSL reissue and when will I need to request it?

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

The reissue of an SSL certificate means its replacement with a new SSL. The reissued SSL certificate will only be valid until the expiration of the original certificate.

You will need to request the reissue of your SSL certificate in any one of the following situations:

  • You have lost the private key for the certificate;
  • You have changed your web server/hosting provider;
  • You have changed your contact information and you need to update it on your certificate;
  • You feel that your private key is compromised.

The reissue of your SSL certificate is free of charge.
