A change of TLS certificate provider

With SSLmarket, you can take full advantage of the Competitive Replacement program, which favours the transition from another certification authority to DigiCert. During the transition, you will receive a refund for the current certificate at a discounted price. In addition, you do not have to wait for the existing TLS certificate to expire, the unused period will automatically be added to the new order.

Do you have a TLS certificate from a competitor? Transfer it to DigiCert and get up to a 25% discount!

If you currently use a TLS certificate from a competing certification authority and want to use DigiCert family certificates and our services, then we have a simple and advantageous solution for you. If your current certificate does not expire yet, do not despair about the loss of its validity - you will get up to 6 months of validity on the new certificate!

Benefits when switching to DigiCert

The amount of benefits you can receive during transition depends on the trustworthiness (type of verification) of the selected new certificate (not the original competitor). You can save the most when switching to an EV certificate with extended authentication and choosing a prestigious Secure Site product.

  • Switching to a DV certificate = 5% discount
  • Switching to an OV certificate = 10% discount
  • Switching to an EV certificate = 15% discount

When you switch to the premium Secure Site certificate, you will get an additional 10% discount! Up to 6 months of remaining validity are added to the new certificate.
