The Domain Validation (DV) SSL certificate is the most affordable choice for increasing the security of your blog, personal or small business website. Since there is no required paperwork, the process of acquiring the Domain Validation certificate is very quick and easy: you will have to prove that you are the domain owner just by responding to an automatic e-mail message. After a couple of minutes, you will receive the issued SSL certificate which can be installed immediately. Sites with Domain Validation certification can be identified by the green padlock that is displayed by most web browsers.

This type of SSL certificates is recommended to be used if you need to prove that your site is secured, by having a secured connection. The Domain Validation certificates don’t display the legal entity, as the identity of the website owner is not checked while issuing them. So, if you have an e-commerce website or a site that collects users’ personal data, you should consider buying our Business Validation (BV) or Extended Validation (EV) certificates, which will make your site more trustworthy.

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.
