Bulk Reissues and Extended Renewals

Customers affected by the upcoming distrust of Symantec, Geotrust, Thawte and RapidSSL certificates have a number of options prior to the September deadline to ease the reissue process.

Extended Renewal Periods

Instead of reissuing your certificate and then renewing it again in a few months you could instead choose to take advantage of the extended 210 day renewal window and renew the certificate instead.

If your certificate needs to be reissued prior to 13 September 2018 and has less than 210 days remaining you can instead renew your certificate and the remaining time (up to 210 days) will be added to the new certificate. To qualify you must purchase a 1 year certificate to replace a certificate that expires after 13 September 2018. The remaining time on the existing certificate will be added to the new replacement certificate up to a maximum validity period of 825 days (hence this only applies to 1 year certificates.

To take advantage of the Extended Renewal window simply purchase the certificates you require either from your reseller/bulk purchase account or via our website. Select the renewal option when providing your new CSR.
