Renew a certificate

Login to the portal and go to SSL certificates > certificates


When you renew a certificate, you'll receive a new certificate with the same data as the last one, but with a new start- and end date. The remaining validity from the old certificate will be added to the renewed one. To renew a certificate you'll need one of the below;

Domain Validation certificate

To renew the certificate  domain validation is performed, the same CSR can be used.

Organization Validation certificate

To renew the certificate domain validation is performed, the same CSR can be used

Extended Validation (EV) certificate

To renew an EV certificate both a new CSR and a signed application form are required. In addition, a verification call and a domain validation will be performed.

Renewal terms
  • For a renewal, the remaining validity in days of the current certificate will be added to the new certificate. This is only possible when the certificate type doesn't change.
  • As of 1/9/2020, the maximum validity term of SSL certificates is limited to 398 days. This means that the current renewal period has a maximum of 30 days.
