Renew SSL Certificate

We can walk you through the renewal process and get you set up with a new SSL certificate

SSL renewal is a fact of life. The maximum lifespan for an SSL certificate is two years (27 months-we'll get into the later). Renewing is relatively easy, it's no different than re-issuing, but it makes sure that your encryption is always up to date and your validation records are still accurate.

Why do I have to renew my SSL certificate?

SSL certificates expire, at which point they are essentially dead-browsers will no longer recognize them. The reasons for renewing are two-fold:

  • To stay technologically up to date
  • To maintain accurate validation records

Currently, the max lifespan for an SSL certificate is 2 years, but the browsers have indicated they support an even shorter lifespan.

Do I keep the same certificate when renewing SSL?

You don't have to keep the same SSL certificate when renewing. Maybe you want to upgrade to extended validation. Maybe you need to add functionality like a Wildcard or Multi-Domain. No problem. When you renew SSL, you can replace your expiring certificate with any SSL your heart desires.

SSL Certificate Renewal: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What happens to the time left on my old SSL certificate when I renew?

The time carries over-up to three months. That's why maximum validity is 27 months. This is done to get people to renew earlier. Bad things happen when you wait to renew.

What happens if my SSL certificate expires?

The browsers will stop recognizing it and issue their users an interstitial warning. As a result, you won't be able to run encrypted transactions on your website and ultimately, this could put you out of business. That's why we strongly recommend renewing your certificate well before its expiration date. But if your SSL certificate has expired, here's what you should do.

Do I need to undergo validation again when I renew?

No. As long as you renew before the certificate expires, Comodo will use the information you've already supplied to re-verify you. Of course, if any of your business information has changed you'll need to update Comodo. If you wait to renew until after you certificate expires, you WILL have to go through validation again.

Any other advice on renewals?

Yes, don't wait too long to renew. Remember, because of the human element involved; it can still take a day or two to get a renewal issued. If you leave renewal until the 11th hour, you could have a lapse in security.
