SSL Autorenew feature

Question

Is it possible for certificates to be renewed automatically before their expiration date?

Answer

Yes. Certificates have neither grace nor redemption period.

RCP lets you set an auto-renew option.
To enable, in the SSL overview of your control panel you can find the option "Auto Renew" (AR).

If you enable the option, we will automatically create a new SSL order for you with the same details as the old certificate, including the order period before 15 days of the expiration date.

We will place the SSL order, but the validation which is performed by the Certification Authority is still a necessary step before the certificate will be delivered. 

Be aware you will receive a new certificate, which still needs to be installed with the "old" private key.

AR = Auto-Renew
RN = Renew
RI = Reissue
CN = Cancel

Do not want to use the auto-renew settings?
Start a new order in your RCP and let the old SSL expire.

The remaining period won't be added if you start a new order instead of renewing an existing one.
