Certificate validation method

The process of issuing an SSL certificate is fully manual and comprises applicant data validation. The organization´s data is checked in the Commercial Register and the organization´s contact data is checked in public phone books. Finally, a phone call with the authorization person stated on the order is made.
If the certificate authority can't find any information publicly, it requires additional validation using forms. 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 online (credit card), your SSL certificate will be issued automatically in a few business days.

Certificate validity

The SSL certificate is valid from the date when its validation is finished and the certificate is issued. The validity period runs from this date for the period (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.

This period will be added to the renewed certificate and the unused days will be rounded up to months.
