Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates are generally procured during a website's implementation phase, but they are subject to expiry and require regular renewal. 
 

If your site's SSL Certificate is approaching expiration, you will need to commence the renewal process.

Step-by-step guide

To Renew a site's SSL Certificate:

  1. Contact Commerce Vision to request a Certificate Signing Request (CSR).
  2. Provide the following information in support of the CSR:
    • Company Name (CN)
    • Organisation Unit (OU)
    • Common Name (CN)
    • Country (C)
    • State or Province (S)
    • City or Locality (L)
  3. Receive the CSR from Commerce Vision.
  4. Login to the Certificate provider's website (with the credentials used during original registration).
