More domain security support

The SSL certificate securesall subdomainsof the primary domain listed in the certificate, not a second-level domain. The primary domain can't be changed during the validity period and the domain is listed in star form * in the certificate.
You can't add other SAN/UC names (Subject Alternative Name/Unified Communications) to the certificate.

Validation process

The SSL certificate issue process is fully manual and means validation of the owner of the domain for which the SSL certificate will be issued, validation of the organization of the certificate applicant and telephone verification of the contact person. Organization data is checked in the Commercial Register and organization contact data in public phone books. Final validation is performed by phone with the authorization person listed in the order.
If the certificate authority can't 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)

The SSL certificate renewal process can be started 90 days before the end of the validity period. There is no need to worry about losing the remaining certificate validity time, 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.
