How do I renew my SSL certificate?
Renewing is easy, just purchase a new SSL certificate and let us handle the rest
Whether you're a customer of ours or not, we make renewing your SSL certificate fast and easy. Just select the SSL certificate you'd like to replace your expiring one and our SSL experts will help you through the rest. It requires minimal effort on your part and can be done quickly.
How do I renew if I'm an existing customer?
You've probably received a notice from us that your SSL certificate is about to expire if you're a current customer. Simply log in to your control panel, select the expiring certificate and click the "Renew" button. From there just follow the steps and you'll have your replacement in no time.
How do I renew if I'm not an existing customer?
If you're not an existing customer, just shop for an SSL certificate like you normally would. During the generation of your Certificate Signing Request, specify that it's a renewal and you'll be good to go!
What if my expiring digital certificate isn't from Comodo?
No problem. Just shop for an SSL certificate like normal, then select "Renewal" while generating your Certificate Signing Request. Comodo will honor the time remaining on your old certificate, even though it's not from Comodo.
How long does it take to renew?
It depends on what type of SSL certificate you had. If you're just using a Domain Validated certificate, it can be done in minutes. For Organization Validation and Extended Validation certificates, it can take a day or two.
Do I have to undergo validation again for a renewal?
You only have to undergo validation if your business information has changed or you're switching Certificate Authorities. Otherwise, provided your certificate isn't already expired, Comodo will re-use the information you've already supplied to re-validate you, which actually goes pretty quickly.
Ok, I'm ready to renew my SSL certificate
Good. You can log in to your control panel here, or you can browse our selection of new certificates if you're not already a customer. And remember, our SSL experts are standing by 24/7. They're literally standing. We don't buy them chairs-that's how we keep our prices so low.
