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

An SSL reissue means that your existing certificate is replaced by a new one. This process is free of charge. A reissued SSL certificate is only valid till the actual expiration date of the original certificate.

You need to request for a reissue in any one of the following situations:

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