Why would I need to reissue my certificate?

Reissue is done to keep your certificate secure and private if it is moved, or some information on your SSL was changed - the reissue allows you to get a brand-new certificate code.

Only an “Active” SSL certificate can be reissued. The most typical reasons for certificate reissuance are the following ones:

  • Private key (RSA Key) is lost/deleted or a “modulus mismatch” error appeared during installation;
  • The website moved to another web hosting server;
  • Change of the common name in the Certificate;
  • Change of the organization name listed in the certificate;
  • Some outage or bug occurring that affects the currently active certificate.
