Changing SAN items

You can update SAN items for your Multi-Domain SSL certificate during the reissue process. Please note, we ignore SAN items listed in the CSR code and use the ones submitted in special fields using Reissue form.

Changing the common name

  • Sectigo and GoGetSSL certificates allow changing the common name (Domain) during the reissue process. All you need is to submit new CSR with the new common name during reissue. Please note, the previous SSL would be instantly revoked.
  • It is not allowed changing the common name for single-domain SSL certificates for GeoTrust, RapidSSL, Thawte and DigiCert brands.

Things to remember!

  • SSL will be reissued automatically without any revalidation process in case you are using the same (original) CSR code.
  • Previous SSL will be revoked instantly, if you will submit new common name in the CSR code.
  • You will need to validate NEW SAN item only, if you reissue Multi-Domain SSL using original CSR code.
