Due to recent updates in the SSL industry introduced by the Certificate Authority and Browser (CA/B) Forum, starting April 1, 2015 4- and 5-years have been discarded and no longer issued by any Certificate Authority worldwide.
This is why, SSLs.com disabled issuance of certificates longer than 39 months (you might got 3 additional months to your certificate) starting February 26, 2015. We tried to make this change as smooth as possible and for this reason, the following changes will be taking place:
- 4- and 5-year certificates purchased before February 26, 2015 will not be affected by the change.
- 4- and 5-year certificates purchased before February 26, 2015 but not activated before the end of the day February 26, 2015 are not available for activation anymore.You need to contact our Support Team to obtain a full refund and order a 3-year certificate instead.
- 4- or 5-year certificate reissued after April 1, 2015 have got truncated to a maximum validity of 39 months. The removed time from the certificate will not be lost though, if you reissue the certificate again before it expires. But, again, the duration of the certificate cannot be more than 39 months. If the certificate expires with some time remaining on it from the initial purchase, no refund for the lost time will be issued.
