Validation process

The SSL certificate issue process is fully manual and means validation of the domain owner for which the SSL certificate will be issued, validation of the certificate applicant’s organization and telephone verification of the contact person.
The organizatio´s data is checked in the Commercial Register, the contact data in public phone books, and the domain owner is verified against available domain operator databases. Final validation is performed by phone withthe authorization person listed in the order.
If the certificate authority cannot find certain information publicly, it requests an additional form validation. The time to issue the certificate increases by the time needed to make additional verifications.

Certificate issuance time

If you enter a correct CSR file to your order and make the payment, the validation and issuance process of your SSL certificate is generally finished in a couple of business days.

Certificate validity

The SSL certificate is valid from the date its validation is finished and the certificate is issued. The validity period runs from this date for the period (of years) selected in the SSL certificate order.

Certificate reissue

You can have your certificate reissued (if, for example, you delete your private key) any time and for FREE, if necessary. To successfully reissue of the certificate it is necessary to supply a new CSR file which contains the same data as the original order.

Certificate renewal (RENEW)

SSL certificate renewal process can be started 90 days before the end of the validity period. Don't worry about losing the remaining time of the certificate validity. This period will be added to the renewed certificate and the unused days will be rounded up to months. The remaining period can only be added when you order the SSL certificate renewal and pay for it at least 17 days before expiration.
