Pre-validated domains

26. april, 2018. Due to a recent change on our Managed SSL platform, your pre-validated domains have received an expiry date to correspond with the latest CA & Browser forum regulations.
This means that Extended (EV) validated domains will need to be re-validated every 13th month and Organisation (OV) validated domains will need to be re-validated every 27th month, from the activation date.
For the time being, you will not get an email notification when your domain is up for re-validation. Our CA is working on a solution, but we don’t know the timeframe of this yet.
In the meantime, we advise you to log-in to your account and verify if you have any expiring domains. If you have domains that are subject for re-validation, simply follow the on-screen instructions.
Please don’t hesitate to contact, we will be happy to assist you in this matter.
